BLUE MAN GROUP Make Their Mark At Museum Of The City Of New York
Blue Man Group - the iconic and engaging bald, blue-hued, silent trio who first burst onto the downtown New York scene in 1988 and still perform nightly at the
Astor Place Theatre--made a special appearance at the Museum of the City of New York, as part of Uptown Bounce - the Museum of the City of New York's annual summer block party series.
The Blue Men explored the current Museum installation - Blue Man Group: Ready...Go! - making their mark, literally, leaving handprints and a face print on the gallery wall before heading out to mingle with the enthusiastic crowds. Guiding party guests down the stairs and into the rotunda, the group danced, posed for selfies and more.
Uptown Bounce is presented in partnership with El Museo del Barrio and celebrates East Harlem at the top of Museum Mile. The annual block party includes programming and entertainment for the whole family.
Blue Man Group: Ready...Go! is an interactive installation highlighting the creativity and legacy of the bald, blue and silent trio. On view through September 2, the installation includes an imaginative percussive instrument constructed from PVC piping, on loan from the Blue Man Group archives. The installation invites visitors to jam out on the PVC pipe while learning about the group's New York City origins and taking a look at the world through the eyes of a Blue Man.
