Last weekend we hit this amazing large scale art installation by Kara Walker, best known for her silhouette art, and had to share. It smells as sweet as sugar and is as impressive as it is a moving commentary on race. You do have to sign a release to go in and the queue can be a bit long (but moves fast and there are italian ices to keep things cool) — but you will certainly be taken by the message behind the art, the scale, as well as bold shapes and confections used that interact with the environment, melting and morphing daily until July 6 when it closes.
After that the well positioned Sugar Factory is said to be demolished to make way for condos.
