Posted Posted in Arts & Culture

Adroyt Around Town Kawara at the Guggenheim through May 3 I came across a post on Art21, an organization now affiliated with PBS, titled The Walker Curates the News: 02.09.15 that shares what we consider two important artistic mentions when it’s time for our adroyt around town event reviews.

Nobel Peace Prizes Awarded

Posted Posted in People

When the Nobel Peace Prizes were awarded in Oslo today, the committee referred to both laureates, Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi, as “champions of peace.” Yousafzai, who is the first Pakistani and youngest person to ever receive the award, noted she was there to advocate for the rights of forgotten or frightened children; and Satyarthi, […]

Gallery Hopping in Miami (in NYC)

Several weeks ago, I attended the press preview and opening gala of the Holiday House NYC. The array of rooms presented a wave of sensory pleasure as I ambled through the spaces created by some of the top designers in the United States.

I’ve been whisked through the mountain villages around Bethel, Maine, for the past four days and it has been a feast for the senses. Wende Gray took me on a fabulous tour along Route 113 on Saturday, turned us south and had my toes on the shoreline of area ponds and lakes before I could […]

The characters in the film Carnage

Carnage (or One Cranky Afternoon in Brooklyn!)

Posted Posted in Film

Certain movies make you think, some more ponderingly than others. When I saw the film Carnage, the first thought to come to mind was how happy I was to be removed from that Brooklyn living room (which was actually a locale in Paris, France). The four characters, who were brilliantly conceived and acted, would have received […]
