Plastic Cup Portraiture of an Anti-Pollution Princess: An installation of plastic cups amidst the trees at Governor’s Island. The installation intends to show the beauty of recycled art! Go and see this — it is amazing! CDR Studio made this for GI’s City of Dreams Pavilion — art that is made of 30,000 plastic cups that would have otherwise contributed to the city’s waste stream. Bravo!

Chris just put our performance on You Tube, so of course the shameless show biz in me just had to share. But again, THANK YOU ALL for such an AMAZING, SUPER FUN, MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE at GG9. Everyone (skaters and spectators) was so impressed with Cleveland — I may have even recruited some to volunteer in Paris in 4 years! All the best, Marni & Chris

RADICAL MERMAID TO THE RESCUE!

Fab financial in-the-know blog Dealbreaker covered this mermaid (with a bone to pick!) outside NYS Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli’s office, at a protest for the NYS Common Retirement Fund to divest from nasty fossil fuel investments that wreck the climate. Mr. DiNapoli is the trustee of the NYS Common Retirement Fund, the third largest pension fund in the nation. 350NYC delivered 11,000 petitions calling for the comptroller to reevaluate investment decisions, putting people and the planet over profit. Bravo 350NYC!
