Bearded Guerrilla Crochet Artists in Barcelona

A friend sent me this and I think it’s pretty cool.

A group of guerilla crochet artists in Barcelona crocheted beards, roped themselves into a little spot, and held a demonstration on the streets about the lack of men doing crafts. Here’s a site (in Spanish) detailing the project.

So it turns out that someone saw the demonstration, decided to have them entered into a street art competition. Here is an album of them at the competition. They got 2nd place and received a giant check for 2,500 euro.
