The Opening Celebrations: Evening Programs

April 17 & 18, 2013


On April 17 (Opening Day) and April 18, we featured fascinating animation paired with a live performance, plus an architectural projection that turned the Pier 15 facade into a luminous portal (see descriptions below). Stay tuned; there's more coolness to come.
