TEMECULA – The Temecula Valley Museum invites local yarn artists to "splash" Sam Hick’s Monument Park, in front of the Temecula Valley Museum, with colorful yarn creations.

Yarn artists can showcase their knitting or crochet talents in a unique way by reserving a particular park amenity to "splash," including trees, light posts, benches, bike rack, railings, etc.

The artists will then design and create their art and install their creations for display in the park during Temecula’s Annual Street Painting Festival on June 21.

"We wanted to bring a little of the color of the street painting festival down Mercedes Street to Sam Hick’s Monument Park" said Temecula Community Services District President Jeff Comerchero.

create a vibrant look and friendly summer atmosphere for visitors to the park," he stated, "drawing attention to the park and museum."

The event is patterned after the trend for yarn artists to "graffiti" cities with yarn. Temecula’s Yarn Splash is the first event of its kind in the city and will hopefully become an annual tradition. The yarn artists’ creations will be kept up through the summer months as weather permits.

Sam Hick’s Monument Park is located at the intersection of Moreno and Mercedes Streets in Old Town. Temecula Valley Museum is located at 28314 Mercedes Street, Temecula, CA 92590.

To register, visit Temecula Valley Museum. For rules and more information go to or call (951) 694-6455.
