Nothing reminds you to live in the moment, enjoy life and to not take anything for granted like balloons. They’re beautiful, joyous, and bring delight but just for a short time. And with this in mind, artist and founder of Geronimo balloons has taken her love of balloons and created amazing art installations around the world, this time at the world-famous, Lincoln Center’s David Koch Theater in NYC. I was thrilled that the incredible display including 200,000 balloons in sizes ranging from 10″ to 10′ were available for viewing during Juliet’s first viewing of the NYC ballet. My little ballerina danced through the entire hall in anticipation of the show and in celebration of her environment. What a memorable way to experience the ballet and her first Lincoln Center performance!
The burst of rainbow colors and whimsical setup which dramatically flowed from floor – to – ceiling inspired lots of dancing and singing from this tiny tot. (And yes, that’s a dance costume she is wearing. She insisted on wearing it to see her first “real dance recital! lol
AND THEN….they went and changed up all the balloons today which of course, we had to go back and see for ourselves! This time the color theme was silver so we put our silver matching maxi skirts on and excitedly commuted uptown to check it out. And again, it was breathtaking!
Having been there before, she insisted on this time going all the way up to the top floor. What a smartie cuz the view from here was terrific too!
I just love that we get to make mommy and me memories in such spectacular settings like this while living in New York. This NYCBallet art series is such a cool annual installation, isn’t it?
Geronimo’s Jihan Zencirli, has an interest in “creating emotional and physical spaces that can break up the monotony of a day, connecting us to one another and bringing joy.” Well this exhibit, certainly broke us out of the monotony of our usual week! It is something we will never forget!!
So which setup do you prefer? We vote for the colorful one!
