Bleeding Hearts Party Photos!

6 Jul

Last Thursday was a magical night in NYC at the Bleeding Hearts party, and man, I was NOT prepared for what I saw! The event was a collaborative effort based solely on volunteers all sharing one idea–on making this event one kick ass party for all. Yes, I wished I had some extracurriculars at the time, but regardless, the visual and interactive installations were quite something. After walking through this maze, we found ourselves in the basement for a black light reflective concert & dancing on glitter dusted floor! Dancers with glowing hula hoops, a body painting corner to get you ready for the dance floor, non-stop video installation, & a Futurist headlined the concert. An amazing job to good friend Angela Giacchetti, and the countless of people who made this event possible. I can’t wait for the next party! Here’s what you missed….
