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.

A summer without art is no summer at all. If you’re an art fan who misses going to museums, keeping up with local galleries and exploring art fairs as much as I do, then you will be excited to learn that the second edition of Frieze Sculpture at Rockefeller Center will usher out the summer with one-month outdoor exhibit of works by six internationally renowned artists: Ghada Amer, Beatriz Cortez, Andy Goldsworthy, Lena Henke, Camille Henrot and Thaddeus Mosley. The site-specificworks will be installed in open, public locations throughout Rockefeller Plaza, allowing for ample social distancing space in compliance with all City and State guidelines.
