Today we took an early lunch and headed over to Grand Central to see Nick Cave’s amazing performance piece – Heard NY.  This combines all of our favorite art forms – dance, visual art, music, site specific performance art, creative material usage.  MFTA recipient Creative Time has partnered with students from The Ailey School (also MFTA recipient) to bring to life these festive, frolicking horses.  Accompanied by both harpists and percussionists, the daily crossings will delight and enchant.  Bring the kids – go early since it gets very crowded.   The piece runs through March 31st and the daily performances are at 11:00am and 2:00pm. Gallop- don’t walk over to Grand Central’s Vanderbilt Hall.
