Scores of volunteers gathered yesterday to help transport hundreds of thousands of plastic balls from the National Building Museum to Dupont Underground’s subterranean art space.
As helpers scooped the exhibit’s balls into buckets, they began finding loose items underneath the plastic sea. This, as reported by the Washington Post, was anticipated. What wasn’t necessarily anticipated was the condition in which some of the items were found.
From wads of dirty cash to pacifiers tangled in strands of hair, here’s what volunteers found beneath “The Beach.”
