reform school

Redu held an event called Reform School in Soho. They got artists like Shepard Fairey, Swoon and Chris Johanson. They took over a four-story school and covered each classroom with thought-provoking art that questioned the current education system. Very cool stuff.

We got to participate. They asked us to decorate cards with what invention, change or one other thing (can't remember) meant to us). Was kind of cute seeing a bunch of adults in the little school desks.

They had a cello player seated next to two shallow pools of water. As he played the water reverberated and jumped. Really neat experience.
