A significant new art event is about to open this coming week in Brooklyn's Central Park, as a dozen artists, artist-duos, and artist-collectives present site responsive works, including sculptures, installations, performances, paintings, video, and interactive projects. Artists include David Brown, Kemi and Niko, Johanna Mechen, Rebecca Pilcher, and Brenda Sullivan. Artists are loosely responding to the notion of "shelter," including everything from an "adventure hike" to a large-scale timber geodesic dome. Free entry. Come out to one of the nicest (and often overlooked) parks in central Wellington, and expect surprises.
It's great to be back in touch with old and dear friends! Just been exchanging emails with an old pal (Hi Steve!) who sent me this excellent mashup courtesy of the blog Red Telephone 66. Check it/'em out!
Even though my diet veers more towards quinoa and sauteed vegetables these days, I have whiled away many hours in various diners throughout the United States, consuming everything from scrapple and grilled cheese sandwiches to copious amounts of weak coffee. So I really enjoyed reading writer Ed Levine's recent piece entitled "Why Diners Are More Important Than Ever" on the website serious eats. Definitely worth a read but might make you yearn for pancakes or a tuna melt.
