Dan Hurley, the 60 second Novelist, is bringing his skills to Planet Word! Hurley and his trusty typewriter will be stationed on the museum’s Rooftop Terrace, and throughout the afternoon he will write a novel on one long sheet of weather-resistant paper. Hurley will write while interacting with passersby below and with museum visitors who come to the Rooftop Terrace, who will have a chance to suggest plot points and characters for his story. By the conclusion of the event, thanks to Hurley’s continuous typing, his story will reach the sidewalk.
In addition, antique manual typewriters, along with paper and carbon sets, will be placed on tables around the Rooftop Terrace, so that visitors can try their hand(s) at interviewing a friend, family member or stranger, and then pecking out a 60-Second Novel of their own.

Roberto Behar and Rosario Marquardt of R&R Studios created a social sculpture and place to celebrate friendship and camaraderie at the Alexandria waterfront. Waterfront Park becomes a dreamscape, draped in pink and white. The installation features the words “I Love You” illuminated in neon lights mounted 15 feet high. People gather below it, bathed in its pink glow. The central area of the park features a hand-painted ground mural designed to look like a pink and white carpet, defining an open room belonging to all people. It is the 2022 installment for Alexandria’s temporary public-art series, Site/See: New Views in Old Town.
