Upcoming: Ferris Bueller Parade (NYC)

New York artist Mina Karimi sent us this cool sounding request for participants:

On September 6th, I am staging a large performance art piece that requires 6-8 hundred people recreating the parade scene from Ferris Bueller at the Deitch Art Parade in Soho. I am recruiting secret agents in the audience of the parade to mimic the extras in the movie as my Ferris float approaches. In order to fully reproduce the spirit of the scene I will need at least 100 agents on each block of the parade to get the Ferris joy-ball rolling.

This is what I want to happen:

If this looks like a nice Saturday afternoon activity for you, please email me at for further details and instructions.

Subject line: “Ready and Willing” if you are ready and willing. “?” if you have questions. “!” if you have a comment.
(I will only be opening the “?”s and the “!”s)

Hoping to hear from you,
Mina Karimi
