Stations of the Roof

Posted by HEATHER HART (Creator)

An amazing couple weeks. I hosted a meditation at the Roof with Questionbridge where my neighbor and elder, Grandmaster Kham guided the public for an hour. Then this weekend I hosted Stations of the Roof, a pilgrimage to the Eastern Oracle! The museum sold out of tickets in the first half hour for both hour-long slots of interaction! You can see the pictures on my facebook page here. Essentially I made a map of stations you could interact with for free including: Diane Vreeland Massage Therapy, Hair by Topher Gross, Chess with Rigoberto Sabio and friends, Nightlight Astrology and Makeup by Vesta! It was PACKED and wonderful.

And I didnt forget about you, my beloved Kickstarter backers. I'm just a little slow. So working on your rewards getting out now with no other distractions. :D

Tearing the Roof Off the Mother

Thanks so much for your patience!  I promise you will all get your rewards, it is just taking me a bit longer to get them all together in the midst of some great Rooftop activities. :)

The Roof made TimeOutNY's Critic Pics a couple weeks ago and it's been one of the most popular exhibits at the museum right now!  I did a little "lecture" at the Rooftop on their Target First Saturday celebrations in May where we played the telephone game:



And there were people queued to visit the Roof all night!

I will be co-hosting a free meditation session at the Rooftop on May 25th that should be fun and June 2nd, First Saturday planning is in the works and super exciting!

:)

Week 6: Dancing on the Ceiling...

Posted by HEATHER HART (Creator)

This week has gone so quickly! I meant to update you over the weekend and this week is almost over.

I have posted some of the reception photos at this link along with some documentation of our first public program at the Brooklyn Museum. Doowan Twuthers, from Seattle, made a guest appearance on the rooftop on Saturday while the public built personal shrines.

I also wanted to post snapshots I took of the names scrawled on the rooftop. If you want better documentation by a photographer, I'm happy to refer you to my professional photographer for an image (obviously not these :) ).
