Sword-Swallower, Strongman, Miss Cyclone to Appear at Exhibit Opening
February 2nd, 2009, 3:49 pm
Tomorrow night, “Fredini” the Sword Swallower, Miss Cyclone, and other Coney Island stars will be making guest appearances at MAS to celebrate the opening of the new MAS exhibit ImagineConey: Bold Ideas for Coney Island’s Future, and you are invited to join them. More than 350 ideas about how to reinvent Coney Island were submitted from around the world to the MAS initiative ImagineConey over the past four months. And, these ideas, together with results of two public workshops and a charrette – an intense design workshop – are on display at the MAS Urban Center Galleries from Wednesday February 4 through Wednesday, March 11. Join us at the exhibit opening on Tuesday, February 3, 6.30 – 8:00 p.m. Entry is free, but reservations are required as space is at a premium. RSVP online or call 212-935-2075. If you can’t make it tomorrow night, don’t worry, you can still follow everything that’s going on here and interact with us through Twitter, as we will be “live-tweeting” the event.
