Artist Ekene Ijeoma's Breathing Pavilion is made up of a 30-foot circle of 20 illuminated inflatable columns, which slowly modulate in brightness to illustrate a deep breathing technique designed to bring calm.
Sit or stand around the pavilion, syncopating your breath with the lights and attuning yourself to a shared rhythm.
Masks and social distancing required.
Breathing Pavilion will also host a weekly series of site-specific performances. All performances begin at 6 pm and are drop-in (no RSVP required). Rain dates will be subsequent Fridays.
