Mr Monkey was delighted by a display of photos showing The Bruce High Quality Foundation, whose motto is "Professional challenges. Amateur solutions", performing their Rite of Spring. Inspired by the Beaux-Art Ball of 1931, which was notable for a couple of dozen Modernist architects agreeing to go dressed as their buildings, members of the Foundation impersonated New York buildings and scampered around Central Park.
You can read about the Foundation at the Bruce High Quality Foundation website and about the 1931 Beaux-Arts Ball at the New York Times website.
