Wonderland’s aniversary

As the obvious Alice in Wonderland fan that I am I couldn’t miss the opportunity to experience the “Alice: 150 Years of Wonderland” exhibition at The Morgan Library and Museum in Manhattan. Even when this exhibition ran from June 26th through October 12th i basically waited until the very last day (and almost missed said exhibition mind you…), but putting that aside it was a very enjoyable experience.

Como la fanatica evidente que soy de Alicia en el Pais de las Maravillas no podia perderme la oportunidad de ver la exhibicion “Alice: 150 Years of Wonderland” en el Morgan Library and Museum. Aun cuando esta exhibicion tomo lugar del 26 de Junio al 12 de Octubre (Y basicamente espere hasta  el ultimo dia) la exhibicion fue maravillosa.

Although i must admit i expected it to be slightly bigger and to contain more pieces, the exhibition provided samples of original sketches and drawings from the first editions of the book, as well as from the original animated Disney film (My favorite Alice movie so far). In addition original photos of Lewis Carroll, as well as Alice Lidell (The girl who inspired Alice) could be seen.

Aunque debo admitir que esperaba ver una exhibicion mas grande y con mas piezas, esta tenia dibujos originales de la primera edicion del libro, asi como de la pelicula animada original de Disney (y mi pelicula favorita de Alicia hasta ahora). Adicionalmente fotos de Lewis Carroll, y Alicia Lidell (La chica que inspiro a Alicia) pudieron ser apreciadas.

Last but not least, in order to merge Alice with the social media trends of our times, there was a live size Alice standup that encouraged visitors to take a picture with her and post it with the hashtags #Alice150 and #WonderlandNYC (Which of course i did!)

Para finalizar, y hacer de Alicia una experiencia mas actual, un poster tamano natural de Alicia pedia a los visitantes tomarse una foto con ella y publicarla usando el hashtag #Alice150 y #WonderlandNYC (Lo cual por supuesto hice)
