Steven Berg aka The Glitter Knitter Live-action knitting by Steven Berg Saturday, March 23rd, 7pm.
The site-specific installation will feature Steven's wickedly playful sense of style and his collaborative, community-oriented approach to art and place making. Steven will discuss his creative process and his career in fiber art, which has encompassed both art and craft, corporate and artisan - and all of the fuzzy areas in between. In true Third Place style, this event will be followed by ping pong and karaoke.
Fresh from a month that included travels to South Africa, Paris, and Amsterdam, Steven brings his specific vision and global fiber assortment to South Minneapolis through StevenBe Yarn Garage at 35th and Chicago. Steven has been blurring the lines between art and craft since his mother taught him to knit as a child. By the age of 8, he was designing and creating sequined gowns for the Barbie dolls of neighborhood friends. His love of design led him to an education at Parsons and the Fashion Institute in New York, emerging as an international designer and buyer traveling the globe. It is a natural progression that after years of corporate dealings, Steven has returned to his roots and reconnected with his true passion: sharing fiber arts with others.
