You all believed in us to create the first art installation live in Central Park during the NYC Marathon.
#Juiceboxwall took more than we could imagine.
In one sense, over 800 Ssips juice boxes filled up the 6' x 7' frame that served as a photo opportunity.
On the emotional side, Erik and I rose early and stayed up late with studio lights learning the amount of energy needed to bring an idea into existence.
I'm still processing how quick it happened.
"Why juice boxes?"
Children going to the playground, teenagers chasing after each other, and tourists visiting the city stopped to ask questions.
The one message we wanted to spread is that a single juice box saves our life on a daily basis. But the conversation didn't stop there...
After posing for a Canadian reporter, the #JuiceBoxWall was carried across Central Park making stops at the Delacorte Theatre, The Great Lawn, behind the autumn trees of the MET, and all the way to the NYC Marathon.
People told us about siblings they lost to the disease, strangers hung around far longer than a New York minute, teens surprisingly were well informed, and many tears were shed.
You all have gave a voice to our project and can't wait to continue this series of advocacy.
Until Next Project.
Racquel & Erik
