More Big Bambú info: Reception to be held on May 17 beginning at 2:30pm

In an earlier post I mentioned that Mike + Doug Starn will will be opening the Big Bambú to the public this coming weekend. There will actually be a reception held on Sunday, the 17th starting at 2:30 3:30 - 7:30 pm.
The Starns ask that if you are planning on visiting the project, to send an email to the studio at bb[at] letting them know. If you send an email, as I did last week, you'll receive a reply with directions to the old Tallix building in Beacon. The email also informs you that you'll be visiting a working environment and although they'd like to permit climbing on the structure by members of the public, the chance of that opportunity is unlikely given issues of liability, and as of now, upon arrival visitors will be asked to sign a waiver stating they will not attempt to climb the work.
Update: Visitors will not be asked to sign a waiver to see the piece. Climbing of the work will not be permitted. RSVP is not needed if you want to visit, but if you'd like driving directions and if you'd like to be updated on Big Bambú goings on, feel free to email the studio: bb[at]
Also, Big Bambú will be open on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays (not Sundays) in June, July and August.
Taking pictures and video of the work is welcome.
Big Bambú is located at 310 Fishkill Ave. The project's location is marked on the google map of Beacon Art Venues that lives in the sidebar. recently posted a two part video of a talk with Starns gave in Beacon. Here's Part 1 and here's Part 2.
