Artist Jihan Zencirli has filled the New York City Ballet at Lincoln Center with colorful arrays of balloons ranging in size from ten inches to ten feet. The balloons are biodegradable and compostable, so you don’t have to worry about them destroying the oceans. What a happy sight!
There will be free public viewing hours for the general public to view the exhibition February 17 through February 25 at the following times:
Mon-Fri 10 AM – 6 PM
Sat 10 AM – 12 PM
Sun 10 AM – 1 PM
A stunning transformation of the foyer of the @nycballet theater by resident artist Jihan Zencerli, a perfect appetizer for some superb Balanchine and music conducted by @andrewlitton_! pic.twitter.com/zVnnKtHoKq

The ballet was beautiful, but the balloons really made my day. 🎈 pic.twitter.com/37Vc338lyP

Interesting how little is made of the David Koch name for the old New York State Theatre. I know people who have cancelled subscriptions to Paul Taylor because of this change.
Then others opine: “If Mr. Koch really wanted to do something big he’d bring back the NYC Opera! God knows he has the $$$”
And David Geffen Hall will not be receiving a gut renovation because Lincoln Center could not raise the money.
