a bit of color opening night, acoustical shell, managua nicaragua glen howard small and roger lewites architects 2005
i was pleased that rosario murillo had removed about six steel trees in front of the acoustical shell, i thought she might have read my blog. that was a month ago. i was told, she probably needed them elsewhere.
to my surprise last night i observed a new use for the acoustical shell. a mannequin for lights
recently she has discovered putting lights on natural trees, so maybe there is hope that all the steel trees will come down and natural trees will be planted to replace them.
i was coming out of the opera house last night after attending a gallery show, and overheard a couple of sophisticated women that were gasping and critical of the new crass light show trappings on the acoustical shell. the propaganda giant cartoons on stage still remain, all so boring.
you would have thought rosario would project colors onto the white clean acoustical shell, like what was done on opening night. standard procedure in stage lighting and buildings.
