I have been hearing all about Orly Genger's exhibit in Madison Square Park called Red, Yellow and Blue for the last month now and been meaning to head downtown to check it out. So I decided to wake up extra early today before too many people were out and about...and especially before it got too hot (upper 80s and low 90s this week...eeekkk!).
When I arrived my inner art historian was so so so very happy! Red, Yellow and Blue makes you feel like you are in a scene in Alice in Wonderland...or a Dr. Seuss book. So magical and whimsical, don't you agree? This art installation just screamed fun!
Isn't the scalloped hemline just too adorable for words? So feminine...so girlie. It adds a little something special to this rather simple dress.

Red, Yellow and Blue is 1.4 million feet of hand knotted nautical rope (enough to span the length of Manhattan nearly 20 times!) that has been painted in these bold hues.
If you are in NYC from now through September 8th be sure to head on over to Madison Square Park to check it out. And you can always grab some Shake Shack afterwards. ;-)
For those of you up in the Boston area, guess what? You will be able to check it out as well. It will travel to deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in October of 2013.
