Online Staff Report

Yarn bombing — it’s graffiti, but you’ll love it. This summer, the entrance of Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden and the Nancy Olson Children’s Garden will be covered in color and patterns created by local knitting clubs and enthusiasts. As a living museum, Klehm offers an outdoor exhibit that will bring a new form of art and visual delight to the Rockford area.

The exhibit debuts July 20 with a “Knit in Public” presentation by the many groups and knitters who contribute to its success. The July 20 event will run noon to 2 p.m., and cost is included with admission to the museum.

Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden is at 2715 S. Main St., Rockford, and can be reached at (815) 965-8146 or online at klehm.org.
