Last night I dashed over to One Arts Plaza after a lovely/tipsy afternoon with the outrageous ladies at the Mad Hatter’s Tea (hello to table 48!) to rub shoulders with people who can actually afford to move into OAP, not just talk about it incessantly with no hope of actually ever doing it. I’m happy to at least be allowed to partake in events that happen here, including last night’s official unveiling of the art in the lobby, which includes a curvy bronze sculpture from Larry Bell and a massive video art installation from Lincoln Schatz.
Mint juleps in silver cups were just the headache cure I needed, and I watched as guests such as Lucy and Henry Billingsley, Lucilo Pena, Lionel Morrison, John Runyon, DMA Director Jack Lane, Caren Prothro, artist Tom Orr, Natlie Chu, David Cadwallader, and Amy L. Hofland and Mike Agis from the Crow Collection mingled and chatted around the lobby. Everyone was talking about Schatz’s two video walls, which were playing back recorded video of people walking around the party. Check out his website to get a good idea of what this looks like. Good stuff, and I guess it should be, for the cost of living there.
