Ten-foot Pineapple Crochet Sculpture Debuts at The Alise San Francisco
On Wednesday, April 26th, STAYPINEAPPLE will reveal the newest and largest of its commissioned art installations – a 10-FOOT TALL crochet pineapple – at The Alise San Francisco with a Boozy Shake cocktail party celebration in the hotel’s lobby with crochet sculpture artist Gina Gallina. The crochet sculpture will be on display at The Alise San Francisco for guests and visitors to enjoy for weeks to come until it travels on to the next STAYPINEAPPLE hotel.
The stunning and unusual artwork took Gallina over three months to complete. She used eight miles of yarn to crochet “Granny Squares” into the special pineapple pattern finished with glimmering jewels. The support structure is a custom-made inflatable form that sits on a crochet-covered base and topped with an impressive plume of green.
Gallina is known in the crochet world for her unique approach of sculpting crochet into surprising works of art. Fans of the art form can join her for a Crocheting Happy Hour on April 27 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. in the lobby with complimentary pineapple cupcakes, coffee and tea while learning new crochet tips.
See you there!
