Glow at the St George Ball - Day de Dada

Slide Show from "Glow"

On Saturday December 11th, 2010 Day de Dada artists met at the Staten Island Museum  for “Glow” at the annual St George Ball.

The “Glow” Art Party included performances and installations on every floor of the Staten Island Museum.  Partygoers were able to greet a gorilla, find out their net worth as a walking talking art piece, choose a pat down or a hug, watch interactive  projections on the wall, meet a Dragonfly and sample a special dada brew.  Psychoanalysts were on hand to turn deepest dreams and desires into poetry.  Installations included sculptures of fantastical animals, the shifting lights of Clowntrodden, black and white figures and florescent rocks.  Even the plastic cups used at the celebration turned into a family of walking sculptures.  All together over 20 artists participated and helped to create a dada filled evening with a willing audience and a museum that knows how to throw a party.
