Finally, someone is offering a perk to those who got vaccinated before it was being incentivized with cash payments. As the country continues to scale Covid-19 vaccinations, Krispy Kreme has found a way to show support for those who are protecting themselves and others by getting vaccinated. For me, staying healthy was incentive enough, but it’s nice to be acknowledged for doing the right thing . Here’s the deal:
For one week only, 8/30 – 9/5/21, anyone who shows their Covid-19 Vaccination Record Card at any US-based Krispy Kreme location will receive two free doughnuts: an Original Glazed doughnut and an Original Glazed Heart-shaped doughnut. If you are feeling generous, you might offer your heart-shaped doughnut to a friend, though I am pretty sure I would eat both doughnuts myself. Because free donuts.

Jayson Naylor’s murals are easy to recognize for his use of bold, psychedelic colors and pop culture images wrapped around an uplifting message. This piece, which is on the side a store located at the northeast corner of Grand Street and Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is called Indulge in Love. As you can see, Jayson has spelled out the word LOVE using images of things we all love to indulge in, such as . . .
An Ice Cream Cone.
A little bit of Love with a Heart-shapedV.
A Delicious Piece of Fruit!
Jayson also a has a piece on the building behind this one, which is only partially visible from street level, so I’m afraid I cannot tell you what that one says. Indulge In Love went up in August of 2019.

Hey, did you make it to Dismaland? Neither did I, but here’s an exhibit you can see to help assuage your pain. Better In Than Out presents a comprehensive exhibition of Banksy’s artwork spanning a full decade. The exhibition includes works on paper, unique paintings and an original graffiti wall; including approximately 50 works beginning with an early-career canvas painting created in 2000 and rounded out by prints published in 2010. Most of these pieces we have seen before, but that’s what makes them classics! This showing of Bansky works celebrates the two-year anniversary of Banksy’s month-long residency in New York City.
Grin Reaper Series
Banksy has become synonymous with street art; legendary through controversy and mystique, the proverbial masked man has been prodding authority for over a decade while simultaneously inciting a palpable intrigue from the masses. By conveying his simple yet powerful messages, Banksy’s imagery from the streets has become iconography of today’s pop culture.
Choose Your Weapon Series
Whether his subjects are that of social commentary, sarcasm, anti-establishment, mock-propaganda or a call for governmental anarchy, Banksy seems to capture an audience from all backgrounds regardless of sex, race, nationality, or economic status. Although nothing is safe from his wrath, it is safe to say that Banksy has propelled a unique following and market unlike any in the art world.
As you can see in this exhibit, Banksy has created, and recreated, many of his famous images as paintings, limited edition prints (less than fifty total images produced), and even sculpture. Taglialatella Galleries’ Better In Than Out brings Banksy to you in exhibition form, displaying works that were created for fans and collectors to enjoy.
No Ball Games
Banksy’s Better In Than Out is on view only through October 31st, 2015 at Taglialatella Galleries, Located at 231 Tenth Avenue (between 23rd and 24th Streets) in the Chelsea Gallery District.
I saw a couple of these Homer Made To Stay stickers — where the “O” in Homer is a Pink Frosted Sprinkled Donut — on 11th Avenue between 18th and 20th Streets when I was in that area recently. I can’t find any reference to its meaning or creator on the Google. And so, it remains a mystery until someone leaves an enlightening message in the comments; which means you’ll be waiting a long, long time.
