With the Art Production Fund, Park Avenue Armory presented its first contemporary art exhibit. Artist Aaron Young’s Greeting Card was described by New York Times writer Roberta Smith as “stunning”-a showcase of the Armory as a unique art venue. Seven hundred audience members stood on the balconies above as motorcycles throttled and spun below creating columns of thick smoke and causing a sense of “Coliseum” spectacle that was simultaneously thrilling and disturbing. The work was open to the public for one week after the performance free of charge.
