Invisible Dogs | Improv Everywhere

For their latest Improv Everywhere Mission, over 2,000 people walked “invisible dogs” down the streets of Brooklyn on a Sunday afternoon. The leashes were on loan from the current owner of 51 Bergen Street, the factory space where the invisible dog toy was invented in the 1970s. Participants of all ages spread out from Red Hook to Brooklyn Heights, very seriously walking their very silly dogs.

In had the pleasure to meet with Lucien Zayan and get a personal tour of the Invisible Dog Art Space on Bergen street. It’s impressive what he is turning this big beautiful building into. His enthusiasm and vision are contagious. And I am happy to announce that Charlie Todd of Improv Everywhere will be our CreativeMornings speaker in December. Yay!

pS: Our studio is now a proud owner of an invisible dog. I take him out for walks over lunch. If you’re in DUMBO and see me walk my little four legged pal, don’t hesitate to come up and say hi.
