Kensington residents did double-takes early on the morning of Wednesday, August 14, when they saw colorfully knitted “wraps” adorning trees, poles, and handrails in front of the Kensington/Talmadge library.

According to nearby residents, the knitted wraps were put in place sometime late Tuesday evening. All the wraps perfectly fit their assigned locations while others were hand-stitched in place, suggesting substantial forethought in executing this surprise art installation.

Most prominent is the knitted tree emblem announcing this as an “SDPL” — San Diego Public Library.

Residents who stopped to admire the handiwork expressed pleasure that artistic neighbors may have had a hand in creating and executing this unique urban guerrilla art form.

Would have liked to hear what the library employees themselves thought of the art and if they are going to let it remain.
