01.05. Sparda-Day: One Day in May


Rosemary Mayer once said about “Some Days in April”: “The work is a monument for, and to connect, the individuals, flowers, stars, times, on the balloons.” The project is a memorial to her friend Ree Morton and Mayer’s late parents who shared birthdays in April. On the balloons, Mayer painted the date in April associated with the person, two names for each person, the names of stars currently in the sky and the names of flowers currently in season.

On May 1, 2022 we are celebrating “One Day in May” sponsored by Stiftung der Sparda-Bank West with a balloon workshop, guided tours and free access to the museum from 10 am to 5 pm.
