What Does It Look Like to Walk Through a Room Filled With Nothing But Orange Balloons?

Friday night, at the Arts Magnet fund-raiser , two friends used their phones to show off their oh-lucky-me early looks at Martin Creed's Work No. 1190: Half the air in a given space -- otherwise known as that room full of balloons you see above. It officially took up residency in the Lower Level Gallery of the Nasher Sculpture Center on Saturday , and we tried all weekend to make it over; the 7-year-old who lives in my house opted instead for a paddle-boat ride on the Fair Park lagoon. Beside, there's time -- it's there through June 19. Pop art. Boom .
