Five Things for Today: May 21, 2020

Kadima is fun and easy to play just about anywhere


1. We didn’t get to experience the much anticipated Yayoi Kusama return to The Hirshhorn this spring, so the museum is bringing the wonder of the artist to us at home with some Kusama-inspired activities. There’s a Maker Morning project to create a little piece of the Infinity Mirror Room Phalli’s Field by sewing polka-dot tubers. And a special Hirshhorn Kids at Home project invites mini-Kusamas to explore the artist’s use of repetition and even discover unexpected dot-making tools.

2. Warmer weather calls for outdoor games! We love Kadima (see pic above), because it’s fun, easily transportable, and you don’t need a lot of space to play. Some other great al fresco family games: Bocce, Spikeball, Croquet, and Cornhole.

3. Plan for the holiday weekend with some help from The Lane Social Club. They’re offering a super fun “Memorial Day in a Bag.” The kit includes all the ingredients needed to make chicken kabobs, black bean salad, and strawberry shortcake. Plus, it comes with a six pack of beer (Dance of Days from Atlas), sidewalk chalk, and bubbles. Something for everyone!

4. If you have a graduating senior, know a parent who does, or have someone else in your life finishing high school or earning a degree, you can give them a very special shout out. The Anthem is offering personalized photos ops, a chance for the graduate to see their name in lights on the marquee. Starting Monday, May 25, they’ll display the name for 15 minutes, and the graduate can go down to The Wharf to take photos under the marquee for a unique way to commemorate their achievement.

5. Humans of New York is amazing as ever, but this story has a little something extra. After you read it, get an update here.
