Mainstreet meltdown


ligorano/reese, Main Street Meltdown

On October 29, 2008, the 79th anniversary of Black Tuesday, the stock market crash that caused the Great Depression in 1929, artists Ligorano/Reese will meltdown the “Economy.”

In a new, time-based event, called Main Street Meltdown the artists will install the word “Economy,” carved in ice, in Foley Square, using the New York Supreme Court as a back drop.

The event begins on Wednesday, October 29th at 9 AM and will last 24 hours.

Northern Lights co-presented ligorano/reese’s earlier frozen Cassandra warning, The State of Things, which spelled out the word Democracy, during the Republican National Convention as part of the UnConvention.
