The Happening occurs at 4pm with the option to adopt a foal!
Visitors will work with artist Douglas Repetto to assemble a herd of vicious foals—small walking tables made from scrap wood and a simple mechanism. The monstrous herd will then be set free in the majestic China Rotunda where an epic struggle between good and evil may or may not take place.
