An innocent lamp pole on a quiet street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn was the latest bit of urban architecture to get "knitta'd" with it's own knitted accessory by Knitta Please. The slightly subversive public installation is part of a group show kicking off back-to-school season called "After School Art" this coming Thursday, 21 September 2006 and running through 17 October 2006. Inspired by the no-pressure atmosphere of after school art classes, s.u.n.Arts (the New York-based non-profit arts organization producing the show) encouraged artists to let loose "to create and show art in a supportive, non-judgemental atmosphere." In addition to Knitta Please's work, highlights include Robots Kill Will's Thundercut, and a live drawing by New York native graffiti artist Ellis G, who's known for tracing shadows of bikes and other urban fixtures onto the surrounding sidewalks.
