ORLANDO, Fla. - An Orlando artist is undertaking an unusual project for Father's Day.
Brian Feldman plans to hug his dad for 24 hours.
Feldman, who bills himself as a presenter of experimental time-based art, says the daylong embrace is meant to be a healing and transformative experience.
He says he was inspired by a fellow artist, Young Sun Han, who hugged for 21 hours a stranger selected through a Craigslist ad.
For a $10 entrance fee, people can watch the father-son cuddle. Spectators will be allowed to join Feldman's squeeze-fest midway through — with their own loved ones, of course.
The event will be held at the boxing ring at the Orange Avenue Gym, starting at 12 a.m. on Sunday.
