Announcing Rainbows & Marshmallows – an interactive salon experience with installation and digital performance works by Reid Bingham & Sean McIntyre, Kat Kohl, Suzette Guy & Jacob Abramson, curated by Anne Huntington & Natalie Trainor at Takamichi Hair on the Bowery. Join us May 7 to experience the lights come to life with live LED painting, colorful photo-booth innovation, cavernous sculpture and digital graffiti.

The salon experience will entice and excite the senses with fleeting and lasting marks creating dialogue with the Bowery and its surroundings using windows, walls and buildings as canvas, expanding mediums from performance to portraiture and toasting the evening with cocktails and marshmallows. After the bright rainbowed lights, digital tags and geometric sculpture at the favored downtown salon experience, Takamichi Hair, the Danish restaurant, Vandaag will provide an after party continuing the downtown lit conversation.
