The Candytopia is a candy-themed immersive exhibit that has been touring major cities across the US for a while now. The newest space (and the largest to-date) is located in the Penn Plaza district of NYC, and inhabits 24,000 square feet, boasting 17 different interactive environments, Instagram-worthy photo opportunities, and offering delectable tastes of your favorite sweet treats along your journey!
For Mother’s Day, I’m giving you want you want most: a photo of me with a famous person! This shot of me with Robyn Hitchcock was taken at a very crowded press preview at Morrison Hotel Gallery on Prince Street in SoHo at least ten years ago, judging by the style of frames I’m wearing. I had met Robyn many years earlier at a Grant Lee Buffalo show in Seattle, and we share a mutual friend, so we were able to carry on a somewhat interesting conversation beyond me recognizing him as a famous person. The reason I have that sly look on my face is due to my friend Anne attempting to sneak a photo of us. I do not photograph so well in profile, so I wanted to turn my head and save the shot. Mission accomplished!

I’m not a person who takes selfies, and I rarely post photos of myself on Instagram, but when I do, that photo is always the most popular photo the week. So, what are you guys telling me? This past week I felt compelled to honor the memory of a now-departed friend, Scott Putesky, on April 28th, which would have been his 54th Birthday. This photo was also taken in the month of April at one of artist Mark Kostabi’s Jazz Art Brunches. We had all kinds of crazy fun and got pretty wasted, which is evident if you look at our eyes. You can read that story here.

There are not many things I love more than joining a good friend for a day-trip adventure that involves both Nature and Art. The Katonah Museum of Art is a relaxing 90 minute ride from Grand Central Station via Metro-North, and you can plan a very fun day around a visit to this small museum (about the size of one of the larger galleries in Chelsea) which is situated in the middle of beautiful nature. Right now, they have a fun exhibit of sculptures by The Haas Brothers called Constant Carnival, which runs through June 26th, so you still have lots of time to see it. Pictured above are me and my pal Teddy with one of the brothers’ larger-than-life sculptures, Jungle Fool, who keeps watch out front on the museum lawn. Watch for my full review of the show coming soon!
Now that the (slightly less frigid) Spring weather has arrived in NYC, you’ll be seeing me post more about the fun discoveries I come upon during my weekly Street Art Safari! How many NYC Street Artist’s works can you spot in the above photo? Clue: There are lots of them!
