A large percentage of the 4,800 Artists showed up, plus many family and friends, the Museums "Third Thursday" event, and even Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles. It was nuts! When I got there the line to the MAEP was only as far as Ancient Art and it took about 25 minutes to reach the exhibit, but when I walked out the line was through the entire museum beginning at "China", which is the hall above the Museum Lobby! I'll go back another time when no-one is there.
In the museum lobby they played a slide show on the wall. Not only were all the Entrants pieces photographed and flickered by less than one second at a time, but also a time-lapse of the installation.
