HOTTEA took to Minneapolis, Minnesota for the installment of their project, “Lost & Found“. In Minneapolis, the yarn-bombers salvaged an old, beat up and run down tennis court by creating a yarn net. The hot pink yarn brings life back to the court and brings the ability to stay active and play tennis back as well.
We always love when street art makes people happy and helps people. This is what HOTTEA has done through their latest project. For more on that we will let you read what happened as a result of the project from HOTTEA:
“After the net was complete I rounded up some of the local youth to come try it out, tennis racquet’s and all. They loved it! Mission complete. I ended up giving the tennis racquets to one of the locals that had a sincere interest to play tennis. I came back a few days later to check up on the net and I happened to run into him again. His name is Abnan. He told me this wonderful story about what had happened to him earlier that day….
He and a friend were playing tennis with the newly installed net and a gentleman stopped by and told Abnan if he and his friend came back later that day at 4:00 he would give them both new racquet’s to play with. Sure enough Abnan and his friend showed up and the man kept his word and gave them both brand new racquet’s and a few tennis balls. I couldn’t have been more excited after he had told me the story.”
