Cai and the gang in D.C!

Cai was recently in Washington, D.C. doing double duty: he was among the five honorees for the U.S. Department of State – Medal of Arts award, and also realized his latest explosion event Black Christmas Tree: Explosion Event for Washington, D.C.

If you were there for the explosion, email us your images at info@caiguoqiang.com!  We would love to see the event from your point of view, and share them on our blog.
