Disc go round

Our Red Frisbee, a photography exhibition by Robbie Vorhaus of 25 large-scale color prints, will have its opening reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday at Gallery V! in New York City. Our Red Frisbee is a continuing project by Vorhaus intended to illustrate a "universal connection of spirit and play." His inspiration came while shopping for beach supplies for his children in eastern Long Island, when he came across a red flying disc. He began requesting to take pictures of people holding the disc whenever he felt a connection. He has taken more than 100 images throughout the globe, including in the Dominican Republic, England, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, South Africa, the United States and Zimbabwe. Pope John Paul II blessed the red disc as a "peace offering" at the Vatican in December 1997.

Gallery V! is at 1700 Broadway, 16th Floor, New York City. Its entrance is on 53rd Street between Seventh Avenue and Broadway. To attend the reception, contact Jennifer Lopez at jlopez@vorhaus.com or call 212-554-7438. The exhibit can be seen Mondays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. until March 2004 and by appointment.
