We met Kathryn, who is also a mural painter, at her new mural at Broad and Lehigh a while back. She’s a one-woman community experience getting ideas and plastic bags for her weavings from passers by. There’s lots of energy in Kathryn’s work and we love her spirit.

Kathryn Pannepacker's weaving at Broad and Lehigh last November. It's made of plastic bags donated by passers by. Some people actually stop and help her weave. Recently she inserted a tag guerilla weaving onto a security guard's stool at the Philadelphia Museum of Art before it got discovered and removed.
