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.

I’d intended to provide but more coverage for the current Triennial, Surround Audience, up now through May 24th at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, but there just seems to be too much else going on right now. Still, I do really like this plastic and steel piece, Grosse Stehende (Large Standing), 2014, by German artist/sculptor Lena Henke. I love that it extends the entire height of the room, and that it reminds me of a giant aquarium with a monster inside it.
