Chitzen-Itza Jumping!

This cool picture was sent to me by Joan. She has this to say about her jump:

I hope you will consider posting my Art Jumping this April at Chitzen-Itza in Mexico! I was so excited to learn about the remains of this fascinating Mayan culture, that I jumped for joy in the hot sun at the sites! :)"

Awesome, Joan. Thanks for the submission!

Thanks to Rachel Fick from Washington, DC for sending this photo. Her friends, Amber Landis and Katie Short are jumping within Judy Chicago's installation in WACK! currently at PS1. Rachel said "It's the best piece of art to jump in because it is so bouncy!" Looks like you had a good time, ladies!
