Artist James Grashow spent four years building a giant cardboard fountain. His goal? To put it outside and let it dissolve. A documentary called The Cardboard Bernini was made about the project, and it examines the idea of the tenuous balance between creation and loss, and life's fragility in general. Director Olympia Stone and James Grashow himself will be on hand for a VIP reception.
