Freeman Plaza West
Yarnscape – redefine your view
Yarnscape was a large, ongoing project that allowed the Hudson Square community to beautify the space and create a new view in one of our popular seasonal plazas – Freeman Plaza West (on Hudson between Watts + Broome Streets). Imagine the fence that is adjacent to the traffic entering the queue; before people saw cars. Now imagine different colors of yarn are loosely weaved through the fence; slowly the image transforms from cars to a random array of colors and patterns. What was once traffic is now a collaborative and communal piece of art. While the project’s participation period is over, you can stop by and see the result alongside the fence!
The Hudson Square Connection is extremely excited to collaborate on Yarnscape with the much-loved local business, Purl Soho. Founded in 2002, Purl Soho brings a fresh approach to traditional fiber arts and is a renowned resource for natural fibers, high quality supplies and modern design. Like Hudson Square, Purl Soho celebrates creativity and is a wonderful place to take classes, exchange ideas and get inspired!
Purl Soho is a proud sponsor and is especially happy to donate its new Cotton Pure yarn to the project. One hundred percent un-mercerized Pima cotton, the yarn is soft, simple, unadulterated and beautiful! The Hudson Square Connection thanks Purl Soho for their generosity and commitment to community!
