The House of Malcontents, the guerrilla-art group that turned an F-train car into a living room a few months ago, struck again in Central Park Saturday, transforming Cherry Hill into a scene from Alice in Wonderland, complete with croquet and Lewis Carroll–themed works from a dozen local artists. The group didn't get a permit for the frabjous event, which started just before brillig, but, unlike last time, there wasn't a frumious police officer to be seen. Here, Cheshire Cat Angela Brown, Mad Hatter Gabriella Ripoll, and Queen of Hearts Carol Tessitore play a (non-lethal) game of croquet. —Michael Y. Park
