It wasn’t only the exhibit-specific fifteen-foot tall “ice cream cone” balloon sculpture by Buff Monster, the amazing sculpture wall of 2,000 books by Mike Stilkey, or even the near-fifty unique pieces from top American artists that wowed us – it was the incredible turnout and level of support from the international contemporary art scene that made the unveiling so spectacular.
