15th annual domino toppling extravaganza
BRATTLEBORO - The Brattleboro Museum & Art Center will present the 15th annual domino toppling extravaganza on Sunday, October 16, at 5:30 pm. Doors will open at 5 pm. The event will also be broadcast for free via Facebook Live starting at 5:15 pm.
Veteran domino toppler and YouTube superstar Lily Hevesh and three other highly accomplished domino artists - Brady Dolan, Nathan Heck, and Chris Wright - will arrive in Brattleboro 48 hours ahead of the toppling to begin setting up the spectacle. The floor of BMAC’s Wolf Kahn & Emily Mason Gallery will be filled with an elaborate pattern of tens of thousands of dominoes. Last year’s event featured over 23,000 dominoes.
A full-time professional domino artist, Hevesh - Hevesh5 on YouTube - has over 3.7 million YouTube subscribers and her own brand of dominoes, H5 Domino Creations. She was featured in the award-winning 2021 documentary “Lily Topples the World.”
Dolan - bpdoles on YouTube - and Heck - MarDominoes - are experienced domino artists. Earlier this year, Heck competed in the reality show “Domino Masters” on the “Teen Topplers” team.
Wright is a professional domino artist and an engineer. Through his company Wright Reactions, he builds dominoes and chain reaction machines for advertisements, promotional events, trade shows, and museums. In May 2022, his team “Brains and Brawn” earned second place on Domino Masters.
