Streaming live on Facebook @ 4 pm EST: assistant curator Jennie Goldstein updates us on Standing Julian’s progress (spoiler alert: his head is no longer attached!).

The 8-foot tall, 1000 pound portrait by Urs Fischer of friend and fellow artist Julian Schnabel is also a giant candle. The sculpture has been lit daily since April 2016—and its last lighting is happening this Sunday
