A Balloon Massacre

In case you haven’t “liked” me on Facebook yet I wanted to make sure everyone had a chance to see the last day of the “AVIARY” installation created by Jason Hackenworth.  It was first exhibited in the Guggenheim Museum in NYC for one day through the Works and Process program then it traveled north with only one destination.  Catskill, NY.

In Catskill, thanks to the Masters on Main Street program, this huge sculpture was exhibited for an entire month (in sections though, since there’s no space big enough to show it in one piece).  This culminated in a balloon popping event which although not highly attended, was an awful lot of fun for the adults who participated. There was no way for anyone there to not smile and laugh at the chaos that went on.  If you weren’t there it’s really a shame, but you can at least see the silliness in my photographs. The first photos are of it installed during the Wine and Cheese Festival earlier in the day.  Directly after that all the balloons were dropped onto a tarp and then… Balloon Massacre!
