Augustina Woodgate: Poetry Bombing In Thrift Stores

on Monday, Jul. 11th

You might have heard about the yarn bombing phenomenon -  street poles covered in colorful yarn, or cars covered in tight-fitting knit sweaters (check out Turnstyle’s awesome photo gallery).

But have you heard of poetry bombing?

Augustina Woodgate is an artist from Argentina who’s many passions include secretly sewing poetry verses into clothing labels in thrift stores. She does not let the store know what she’s doing. The project started as a way to celebrate national poetry month in Miami, Florida, but she says it will not end any time soon.

Stay tuned for an interview with Woodgate.
