Earlier this week, Olek and her team┬ádescended upon Little Italy for The L.I.S.A. Project NYC‘s first public artwork of 2014. Olek crocheted a message, a quote from Nelson Mandela, along a fence on Mulberry Street. The crochet mural said, “There is no such thing as part freedom.”

Unfortunately, it seems the 376 square feet of crocheting has been stolen as of Saturday afternoon. If you have any idea where Olek’s piece may be now, please contact The L.I.S.A. Project NYC.

At least we got a few photos before the work was stolen, so enjoy:
