I heard amazing things about Ann Hamilton's "The Event of a Thread." A few of my city friends had gone and the pictures on Instagram were mesmerizing. I was planning on making a trip down to the Park Avenue Armory to see it and having my family in town made it even better.
I tried explaining what it was to my parents and sister as best as I could, but even I didn't really understand what it was. I just knew it was going to be amazing.
And amazing it was. It is beautiful and inspiring and fun and simply incredible. If you're in New York City, you HAVE to go. The pictures don't do it justice.
(I got whacked in the head by this little swinger... and we matched.)
All four of us had fun, which isn't something we can say often. Definitely a trip highlight.
Here's a short video of the experience:
