The Glass Box in the East Wing had been partially filled with purple latex balloons (which my camera saw as blue...) so that half the air in the space was inside the balloons. Being somewhat claustrophobic, it took a bit of watching others go in and out as well as giving myself a pep talk before I too stepped inside that magical room...and had so fun that I didn't want to leave.
Yes! No pep talks needed this time. My friend Katy joined me and kindly took a few photos of me peeking out.
The room is 2 stories with a balcony overlook upstairs. The docent said that due to our extreme temperature fluctuations this past week, many of the balloons have already burst. Originally the balloons reached up to the overlook where this photo was taken.
Sadly, photos from inside the room/balloons were not allowed this time. No amount of pleading with the docent or reporting that the Cleveland Museum of Art had allowed and encouraged photos could get her to give permission. So.....
when I went back in one last time for Katy to get this shot of me...
