The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra rang us on the Batphone and asked if we’d be so kind as to yarn bomb Music Hall. “Of course!” we said, wanting to bring a bit of our kitschy creativity to its otherwise austere interior. Everyone can use a little “fabulous” in their world, amiright? Plus, we thought we could help them end their season on a high note (pun intended).
Once we received our call to action, we locked ourselves in our top secret underground Bombshell bunker with nothing but yarn, and Handel, Bach, and Beethoven music for inspiration. (And snacks. We can’t forget the snacks. Snacks are important.) We emerged a month later with our brightly colored masterpieces and a newfound appreciation for dead German composers. Oddly, some of us are only able to craft in 4/4 time now thanks to our immersion experience.
We learned a valuable lesson with this project. If you want to be featured with the CSO, you can spend a lifetime mastering an instrument. Or, if you’re a clever little Bombshell, you can gift them two fabulous banners. And that, my friends, is how you create a showstopper.
