Commissioned by the Junior Council of the Museum of Modern Art, this visual calendar provides a valuable photographic overview of Kaprow's Happenings.

'This is a calender of past events. The days on it are the days of the Happenings. They were days off. People played. Each day is a page, or more, that can be taken off and thrown away. The Happenings were throw-aways. Once only. Nothing left - except maybe thoughts.' (from introduction).
