Pinky Shears

Ms Kravetz founded one of  midwest’s leading underground yarn graffiti gangs. Alias names have kept these members mysterious and prevalent in this post modern act of civic disobedience. Spreading color throughout the dismal streets of historical district Over the Rhine and downtown Cincinnati, we’ll never know what light pole or storefront they’ll bomb next.

!“My alias is Pinky Shears and I am the “mastermind” behind the fiber artist group The BombShells of Cincinnati. We are a nationally recognized group of 15 yarn bombers. We have created fiber arts installations on Central Parkway’s 7-block stretch. Inviting over 120-community members to create this large-scale art installation. We have created yarn bombing installation at The Contemporary Arts Center, The Cincinnati Art Museum (including 200 community members), The Dayton Art Institute, Fountain Square, a Metro bus to name a few. As Pinky I will be on a panel at The Contemporary Arts Center regarding the Renaissance of the craft movement.  And we have done workshops for Proctor and Gamble, The Contemporary Arts Center and The Cincinnati Art Museum. We are a community building, public art-making collective.”
