Art-full weekend. Saw the Picasso exhibit at Gagosian and Alice Neel (personal favorite) at Zwirner, both in Chelsea. Go go go.
Just a brief thanks to SOOOO many commenters who have responded to the posts this week. Really appreciate all the feedback and have published all under each post.
Went to Utrecht and then to Pearl Paint today for supplies. While at Utrecht (4th Avenue and 11th St.) I saw this at the end of the paper aisle. At first I thought it was a cigarette machine, which totally threw me, didn't think they still even made cigarette machines:
But, of course, when you look at it closely, not only is it NO LONGER a cigarette machine, it is filled with art for sale. This notice was posted above the coin/bill slot:
I fished into my wallet but didn't have a five -- art is not free but it IS cheaper than a pack of cigarettes -- maybe next time. I'll definitely buy a package this week. A few dozen choices:
Finally, on the way back home, I spotted this car on 10th street. Someone has turned the inside of their car into a conceptual art piece. Looked kinda trashy but compelling:
An inspiring day -- did a lot of painting. Lots of story refining -- hee-larious. Car-jacking or rentadread, which comes first? Hmmmm -- stay tuned.
