Happy birthday, Cai Guo-Qiang.  This series of photos is a TBT to the exhibition “Cai Guo-Qiang: Fallen Blossoms,” which was the result of a close collaboration between the Museum and The Fabric Workshop and Museum. A one-time ephemeral event, “Fallen Blossoms: Explosion Project,” was held on the East Terrace on Dec. 11, 2009, as a memorial to the late Anne d’Harnoncourt, former director of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. “Fallen Blossoms” derives its name from the classical Chinese proverb “hua kai hua luo,” which speaks to the profound feeling of loss when a life is cut short unexpectedly.
