new york new

We took a bite from the big apple - Christian and I. Happy Birthday Christian!

We did some research, and we decided that yes, in New York City there is a lot of art in one place. Great shows of note: Olafur Eliasson at MOMA, PS1 and next week, new waterfall installations around the city; Jewish Museum's large collection of Modern American Artists includes some of our favorites: Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still, Mark Rothko, Frank Stella, etc; dinner at Jack's Luxury Oyster Bar (East Village); Karrie Hovey's group show: we arrived soaking wet from running in the rain to get there; New Museum of Art (best from the outside - Hell Yes!); and really, my mind isn't sharp enough to keep listing what there was to enjoy. My list doesn't include the architecture of great note that we hiked around to see while there.

We went to many Museums (Googy restoration):

We looked at art (Christian Rothkophile Butler):

We ate delicious food (our spread at the Chelsea market):

We drank some Colombe Cafe serious espresso:

I could write more, but seriously, I think we can all understand the immensity of that idea. I'm somewhat overworked right now, but all self imposed: Project #1: Onsite Installation at Taliesin July 13 - 19 entitled Progress Report. Project #2: Performance Art - walk through Madison August 16, 11a - 3p entitled Flags. More information to come soon here and at
