Day 17: Into the Streets, Into the Museum
This was the big presentation day for Gift Horse.
We assembled our volunteer crew in the morning and they donned togas for the Green Prix parade.
We already knew that the horse would clear the doorway, but others were concerned. Reality replicated itself and we got outside South Hall just fine.
We look like we are exerting ourselves a lot here, but it was easy to push with all of our crew.
And thanks to Danny Lulu for his excellent photography!
Some of the students from a local high school came out to help.
After 2 hours or so, we made it the San Jose Museum of Art. Clap! Clap!
In the next 3 hours, we quickly disassembled and reassembled the horse in the gallery space for the Retro-Tech exhibition.
At 4pm, we did a quick ceremony, where we presented the horse to Russ, one of the trustees of the museum.
He accepted the gift, but whoa! Look at all the viruses spilling out!
Now they’re on the floor as part of the “artwork” that makes up the horse.
