When you hear the word yarn what comes to mind? Maybe a kitten fiddling with a colorful ball or that sweater that your grandma knit you for Christmas. What about an art exhibit? Artist Courtney Kenny Porto is creating breathtaking feminist art using yarn. The images showcase women in solemn positions using black, white, and gray yarn.

The exhibit will be on display at Nebraska's Norfolk Arts Center from January 5 to February 24. Check out some of the pieces on display now and learn more about Courtney Kenny Porto on her website here.
