Giant White Monkeys! They’re deflated! According to the people at 21c Museum Hotel, the art installation lost power early during last weekend’s windstorm, causing its fans to stop and the six monkeys to deflate on their own, saving them from the ravaging winds that ensued. It seems the monkeys were right, they saved themselves.
But if we’re waiting for the monkeys to re-inflate themselves, we may be here awhile. The Stefan Sagmeister installation went up on September 2nd and were originally intended for visitors of the IdeaFestival and the Ryder Cup. The monkeys are apparently not injured, just awaiting some human attention. We’ve got Europeans here, folks… they want to see monkeys.
