An Epic Installation in Wade Thompson Drill Hall

Using hundreds of yards of translucent material, Neto suspends a gigantic canopy from the drill hall’s latticework truss, spanning 120 feet wide and 180 feet long. Magnificent, aromatic “fabric stalactites” descend 60 feet to embrace a vast labyrinth of passageways and rooms.

Memorial Day: 12pm – 6pm

Admission

**********

anthropodino reminded me of a few things:

1) an ohmu from nausicaa and the valley of the wind

2) being inside a jellyfish

3) just go see it before it closes!

museum mile fest.

http://www.museummilefestival.org/

  • 23 car-free blocks
    5th Avenue between 82nd & 105th
  • Live bands
  • Entertainment
  • Art-in-the street
    activities for kids

One day a year, for the past 29 years, nine of the country’s finest museums, all ones that call Fifth Avenue home, collectively open their doors for free to New Yorkers and visitors for a mile-long block party and visual art celebration. This traffic-free, music- and art-filled celebration fills the street and sidewalks of Fifth Avenue from 82nd to 105th street, the mile now officially designated as Museum Mile. Over 50,000 visitors attend the festival annually.

This year’s 30th annual festival kicks off at Cooper Hewitt, National Design Museum with an opening ceremony, at 5:45pm, on the steps of its landmark building on Fifth Avenue @ 91st Street.

<!–Neighbors of the Museum Mile will have displays at certain points along the mile:

  • Central Park Conservancy – at 84th street, 103rd street
  • Church of the Heavenly Rest – at 90th street
  • Czech Center NY – at 83rd street

–>Plus, follow the mile with street muralist De La Vega – grab a piece of chalk and make your mark!

g-dang i can’t go. but you could!
