Art + roller skating.

Another assume vivid astro focus AVAF8 #tbt. 

#throwbackthursday to 10 years ago today when we opened assume vivid astro focus’ AVAF8 in the Central Park Skate Circle in collaboration with the Whitney Museum. 

When he first arrived in New York from his native Brazil, assume vivid astro focus was struck by the vibrancy of the many activities that take place in Central Park, particularly at the Skate Circle, a stretch of pavement that is transformed into a dance roller rink on spring and summer weekends. Working in collaboration with the Central Park Dance Skaters Association, assume vivid astro focus created avaf 8, a vibrant floorscape for the surface of the Skate Circle. He also collaborated with industrial designer Rama Chorpash to create a colorful canopy for the center of the Skate Circle. Read more at PublicArtFund.org

"A work of art doesn’t have to be explained. If you do not have any feeling about this, I cannot explain it to you. If this doesn’t touch you, I have failed." —Louise Bourgeois

Looking back at Louise Bourgeois's Helping Hands (1993–96), relocated from Chicago’s Jane Addams Memorial Park to Chicago Women’s Park in 2011, and featured in Art21’s 2001 Identity episode.

When you are a kid, you draw a cloud, and you make it blue. I don’t know why …. But it looks nice, the different colors. The trees will be green soon. And it’s so gray now, the blue pops out really nice. (via Olaf Breuning and the Public Art Fund Unveil Clouds at Central Park - Vogue)
