Granville Island is a tourist destination populated with specialty shops, food markets and art galleries that’s accessible via a short ferry ride from the Vancouver waterfront. It was there that I stumbled upon this monumental work of public art locked away behind the security fences at Ocean Concrete. I immediately recognized the larger-than-life mural, entitled Giants, as the creation of one of my favorite street artist duos, Brazilian twin brothers Gustavo and Otávio Pandolfo a.k.a. Os Gemeos.   Continue reading Giants By Os Gemeos on Granville Island

Instagram Post of The Week: Fun at The Spring Break Art Show

I finally made it to the first post-Covid Spring Break Art Show — an extra-fun art event that this year took place across two entire vacant floors of a fancy office building on Madison Avenue. Having each individual office or cubical designed with the artworks of an individual or group of  artists makes for a fantastically immersive experience.  At times, I felt like I was in a haunted house of art, losing my sense of direction as I wandered from room to room, being charmed and delighted to varying degrees by what I encountered.  Needless to say, but you can see I am about to,  it was very surreal and fun. Check out a few of my favorite pieces at the above Instagram post with a simple click of your mouse!

Do you love living in NYC, but occasionally like to take a Day Trip so you can get a new cultural perspective, or just go out in nature and explore? I love doing that, but sadly there must generally be an impetus that motivates me to make a plan. Planning (ugh!) is not my favorite thing, but it is sometimes necessary to achieve the goal of having a crazy fun new adventure. Recently, I took day trip with my art-loving pal Teddy outside the City via Metro-North.  The impetus: The Haas Brothers have an exhibit at the Katonah Museum of Art!

Instagram Photo of the Week: Gail and Jana Visit The Gates!

It seems like it’s been years (but probably just one) since NYC had a snowfall like this! I found this photo of me with my friend Jana while cleaning out my office a couple of years ago, and made this crappy scan, which I shared on Instagram this past week. The photo was taken in Central Park sometime during the February 2005 run of the public art installation The Gates by French land artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, who have sadly now both passed on. Their art, however, lives forever.
