sweater weather: olek’s crocheted charging bull

Olek Bull
New York based artist Olek put her crafting skills to use this holiday season as she worked through the freezing Christmas night crocheting a cozy sweater for Manhattan’s iconic Charging Bull sculpture. The guerrilla art is so bright and cozy (especially against the gray of Wall Street) that I can’t help but fall in love with it. Alas, the neon pink greatness didn’t last long — the park’s caretaker reportedly tore it apart early Sunday morning. No matter, according to Olek, the sentiment stands. She told CNNMoney.com that, “This crocheted cover represents my best wishes to all of us. It will be a great, prosperous year with many wonderful surprises”. – Katie D.
