Events  -  Refinery   29

We never miss Refinery 29’s #29rooms, and this year was no exception. One of the first to create an experiential instagrammable experience for guests, (and tie in sponsors in a meaningful, non commercial way), this year’s 29 Rooms really took it to the next level, straying away from the commercial and choosing 29 artists to design their own rooms. The theme this year was “Expand Your Reality” and that it did with many rooms speaking to the spiritual, positive wellness vibe that is becoming so mainstream and relevant these days.

We saw fun and bold rooms like Uzumaki Cepeda’s “Teenage Bedroom” and then rooms that truly moved us like “Money Mantras” by Money Diaries and “The Values Stand” by The NYC Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment. The experience not only impacted our senses and inspired us, but more importantly opened our hearts. And any installation that can achieve that is definitely worth visiting.
