Yarn Bombing vs Guerrilla Street Art

I have never been much of a fan of yarn bombing, viewing it as a waste of yarn and without any artistic cohesion. I have recently discovered that I am a fan of “guerrilla street art,” as coined by Brian Champlin of WeLikeLA.com, and from where I grabbed these images, as I don’t get out much anymore.

This is a walkway in Santa Monica, and for that reason alone, if I owned a car, I would probably not go see it because there is no free parking in that city. Add to that, the fact that Santa Monica is a complete tourist trap, which explains the lack of free parking. However, I find this installation quite beautiful; I would love to go see it! I wonder how long before the colors of the yarn begin to fade.
