10 Playful Public Works of Art

Playground Crochet

Toshiko Horiuchi MacAdam used to create her colorful, crochet playscapes for a galleries, but when several children started to climb the netted structure, she realized that the work came to life in new and exciting ways thanks to their interaction. MacAdam switched gears and started to create public artworks. Soft pouches, swinging balls of yarn, and other delightful spaces within the installation invite people to have a fully tactile experience. The NetPlayWorks are a lighthearted union of playground structures and contemporary art.
