Must see this weekend. Kara Walker’s installation at the Domino Sugar Factory.

“The centerpiece of the show, called A Subtlety, is a sugar-coated sphinx-like figure that dominates the 30,000-square foot spaceā€”the piece is 75.5-feet long, 35.5 feet high, and 26 feet wide. Nearby stand fifteen 5-foot-tall sugar sculptures of young boys “arrayed in a procession leading to” the sphinx.
The show will open Saturday, May 10th, and will be open and free to the public through its closing date of July 6th. Hours are Fridays 4 to 8 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays 12 to 6 p.m.”
