+ POOL Exhibition Opening at Ace Hotel (and a party for you)

2 likes

Friends, 

We're super stoked to announce an exhibition at Ace Hotel which looks back on four wild years of research and development of + POOL, all through floor to ceiling wall drawings by the team. It'll visualize the process from an idea to a pool, while sharing some of + POOL’s most interesting discoveries and anecdotes to date.

The installation will be open 24 hours, seven days a week at The Gallery at Ace Hotel New York, and will launch with an opening reception hosted by + POOL’s founders (Dong-Ping Wong and Oana Stanescu of Family, and Archie Lee Coates IV and Jeff Franklin of PlayLab), board members (Josh David, co-founder of the High Line; Karen Wong, Deputy Director of New Museum; and Marc Kushner, co-founder of Architizer), and + POOL's Deputy Director, Kara Meyer, on Thursday, February 5th, 2015 from 7-9pm. 

Annnnd if you're really trying to get wild: join us for an after-party in Liberty Hall, located on the lower level of Ace Hotel New York, immediately following the public exhibition opening, 9-11pm, exclusively for ALL OF YOU AND ALL OUR FRIENDS that have been supporting this project from the beginning. 

RSVP required, invite-only, admits two. Cash bar. Our dude Drew Heffron is DJing. Rad. 

Come chill with the team, learn the latest, and help us get closer to swimming in a clean river! 

River or bust,
 THE + POOLERS
