      Watch Out for the Horses on Your Way to the Train
      By MELENA RYZIK

      An arts project is bringing life-size horses, each made colorful
      raffia and fitting two dancers, to the main concourse of Grand Central
      Terminal.

      From the article:
      >> Commuters in Grand Central Terminal will encounter a new obstacle to making the train on time this week: 30 dancing horses.

      It’s part of “Heard NY,” a site-specific performance by the Chicago
      artist Nick Cave, in collaboration with dancers from the Ailey School.
      Mr. Cave, known for his Soundsuits — costumelike sculptures that make
      noise as they move — has created the life-size horses out of colorful
      raffia. Each fits two dancers and rustles like a corn field when the
      herd “grazes” in Vanderbilt Hall or suddenly breaks into choreography,
      set to live percussion, steps from the main concourse.
      ----------------------------------------------
      The Sound Suits of Nick Cave are amazing. If you ever have an
      opportunity to see an exhibit and performance - DO!

      Regards,
