Before Load In. This is looking from 42nd St. to 43rd St. in Midtown Manhattan. It is a through Block between 4 Times Square and One Bryant Park. It is called Anita's Way. Named for the founder of Chashama, the non profit I am helping on this trip. Times Square is one 1/2 block to you your left, and Bryant Park 1/2 block to your right. The day has four components:
1. Anita Durst (founder of Chashama) ringing the NASDAQ closing bell to celebrate the organization
2. Chashama fundraising gala for 400
3. Kick-off of Art Takes Times Square in Times Square
4. Afterparty for 800
Early Morning set up
The Event was created by the Chashama organization, Designed by Christopher Trujillo with Production provided by Danzell. I assisted Christopher Trujillo's efforts.
I draped, taped, arranged, flew, constructed, styled & schleped.
