Olek, NYC Crocheter, Made Us a Present!


Earlier today we mentioned that Olek had gotten in touch to tell us she’d left a little something for us. Well, we found it, chained up outside of VV HQ! Like the cart she crocheted on Wall Street, it also advises not stealing from the public. Don’t worry, Olek, the Village Voice is free!

We should have mentioned this before, but Olek’s solo show at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery, “The Bad Artists Imitate, The Great Artists Steal” opens tomorrow night. We’ll be there and will report back.

Meanwhile, here she is covering that short-stinted walking man statue in Tompkins Square Park.
