Wonder on the Wire Header - 2.23.23 
On Thursday, March 23, the National Building Museum will host Wonder on the Wire, a uniquely inspiring and beautiful event featuring French high wire artist, Philippe Petit. Best known for his walk between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in 1974, Petit will perform on a wire between the third-floor balconies of the majestic Great Hall accompanied by jazz clarinetist Anat Cohen with Tal Mashiach on guitar.
The evening will begin with cocktails on the second floor of the Museum where guests will be able to view photographs and videos of some of Philippe’s past performances at landmarks around the world. Dinner will be served in the center court of the Great Hall, from which guests will then watch Philippe’s performance on the wire. All will then adjourn to the west court for dessert and the opportunity to meet Petit.
