The Myth of the Missing Unicorn

By: Mary Sin Artsy

Poster with missing unicorn photo

Missing Unicorn posters have gone up all over Manhattan and beyond, while a billboard promises a reward on 104th and Broadway. According to the signs, the mythical animal was last seen entering Central Park at West 72nd street, and the public is encouraged to call the sightings hot-line with any leads. Mimicking those photocopied fliers publicizing a lost pet, the posters are the brainchild of artist Camomile Hixon, who has invited the entire city to join the search. The thousands of messages left about the missing unicorn will form the audio portion of the Missing Unicorn installation/exhibition at El Taller Latin Cultural Center on November 11th. Two silver glitter unicorns suspended from the Marionette Theater in Central Park and a large unicorn billboard with the word REWARD repeated three times will also be part of the show. Encompassing audio art, visual art, public spaces and viewer participation, this show plays on themes of inspiration, folk tales, boundaries, and magic. Opening reception is from 6-8PM. Installation/exhibition runs Nov. 11th - Jan 2nd. El Teller Latin Cultural Center is located at 2710 Broadway, 3rd Floor.
