 "...artists take over the Gladstone Hotel with strange and wonderful installations. At every turn, there’s a new piece of art—and if you’re not sure what you’re looking at, the artist is right there to explain it. It’s meant to be a judgement-free zone where you don’t have to worry about asking dumb questions; they’re happy to tell you why there are freaky little fingers poking through astroturf, or pink garbage hanging from the ceiling."
