CROCHET JAM
IMAGE: Artadia Celebrates 15th Anniversary with an Exhibition & Crochet Jam, Curator: Gianni Jetzer, Longhouse Projects, NYC, September 13–October 25, 2014

Crochet Jams engage the public to think differently about the role of art within community and the power of art within society. Crochet Jam, a public, art-making event that's embracing and inclusive, with no attempt made to dictate the creative process nor judge the finished project, is liberating, empowering, and transcending.
