About Rob Funkhouser
Funkhouser is a composer, performer, and instrument builder who can never quite sit still. His work is concerned with ideas of place, memory, and pattern and he is interested in interrogating the interstitial spaces between established genres.
About Mary Jo Bayliss
Mary Jo Bayliss is a welder who evolved into a knitter, a public artist who fell in love with community art. She’s inspired by the beauty found in urban environments and garments and is seeking to keep old crafts alive by giving them relevance to contemporary life.
Learn about Quick Fair Isle knitting history, dip into graffiti, and learn how the two relate. Bayliss will teach interested participants basic knitting as they add to a collective piece on-site. If you don’t want to knit, that’s okay! Draw on a wall of knitting motifs created and inspired by graffiti. These will also be part of an installation when the piece is complete.
All events are free at 320 N New Jersey Street in the greenspace right off the Cultural Trail.
