This bronze statue of Mary Poppins that graces Leicester Square in London is a delightful tribute to one of cinema’s most iconic characters. As I stood before this whimsical rendition of the beloved nanny, memories of my childhood flooded back. I vividly recall watching the 1964 Disney film, where Julie Andrews brought Mary Poppins to life with her enchanting portrayal. I remember thinking that she was so beautiful.

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!
This little bust of a Greco-Roman soldier sporting a super fancy helmet caught my eye despite its diminutive size of maybe 2 inches in height.

The tiny bust is white, but by shooting it with my phone from a low angle, I was able to maximize the pink reflection of the room’s walls through the glass shelf on which it sits. It’s art!

While running errands on my lunch hour, I stumbled upon a set of ten larger-than-life-size bronze statues of various women, who are easily recognizable as celebrities or otherwise influential public figures, which turned out to be part of Statues For Equality, a public art initiative by husband and wife artist team Gillie and Marc. Statues For Equality is a global mission to balance gender representation in public statues and honor women’s contribution to society. Continue reading Statue of Pink in The Financial District→
The cooler, more inclement weather that comes with Fall is slowly encroaching, which means that the annual Roof Garden exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is about to close. So, if you’ve not yet made a visit to see Adrián Villar Rojas’ fantastic installation, The Theater of Disappearance, you have until October 29th, 2017 to check out (weather permitting of course) this unique exhibit that strongly resembles the post-apocalyptic aftermath of a very fancy dinner party.
