Pink Thing of The Day: Abandoned Pink Glove

I recently read that actor Tom Hanks posts photos of abandoned gloves, shoes and the like on his Twitter feed, which has made me hyper-vigilant about noticing all of the abandoned gloves I’ve seen scattered on the streets of NYC this winter. Trust me, there are a lot of them. Of course, I could not help but notice this vibrant Pink Glove laying by a dumpster on my weekly Sunday walk. It looks like it was a good one.

One of our favorite Chelsea Gallery discoveries of 2015 is the Joseph Gross Gallery, where we got turned on to cool and creative artists like Sebastian Wahl and the ridiculously hot Joseph Grazi, among others.

Not to mention, but you can see I am about to, the ladies that work there are super nice and friendly — which we certainly know that is not the case with many galleries — and that makes visiting Joseph Gross a pleasure. Right now, they have a very eclectic Winter Group Show going on where you can see the artworks featured in this post, plus many more!

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Illuminated Mexican Restaurant

We had quite the snowstorm here in New York on the same day I had to travel to Brooklyn for an Art Opening. Lovely. As much as the snow and wind created an unfortunate commuting experience, it did also make for an opportunity to take some nice photos. Pedro’s Mexican Restaurant, located at 73 Jay Street, at the corner of Front Street, is illuminated by exterior lights that change color in rotation, and I stood still just long enough to snap this photo just as the lights were turning Pink! Excellent.

Fun Video: Ithaca Ice Wars Competiton!


Every winter, world class carvers travel to Ithaca, NY to show off their sculpting skills in a national ice carving event known as Ithaca Ice Wars. Sculptors spend an entire day transforming giant blocks of ice into breathtaking pieces of frozen artwork. You can see how the entire town gets involved in the spirit of finding a way to have a good time while freezing your butt off.

The event at which the above video was filmed took place in late December of 2013. So, while it doesn’t get really freezing in Manhattan until at least January, you can see that folks upstate are already finding ways to turn their suffering into wild adventure at least a month ahead of us.

This looks like an amazing event.
