Albert Einstein Statue Gets Yarn-Bombed

Olek strikes again! The famous yarn-bomber, who’s also one of the artists chosen in the Smithsonian’s current 40 under 40 exhibit, has been taking advantage of her time in DC. She recently surprised those strolling through the grounds of the National Academy of Sciences by covering a 12-foot tall statue of Albert Einstein in yarn!
