The way to see New York is on foot, and the easiest way to move around in New York is by using the subway granted its not your personal car, but you get the whole New York experience. We crossed through Central Park on the upper east side of Manhattan to see the up and coming African art facility located on Harlem. To say I was tired at the end of the day is a bit of an understatement. Its like the proverbial, "pounding pavement," only this time we were hoofing around to see all the amazing sights museums and galleries and somehow I feel I barely scratched the surface.

New york city has been a whirlwind experience visiting galleries, museums. Through triangle New york i got to experience the city but alas all good things must come to an end. And what better way to end a wonderful time than spending thanksgiving among artists, having a thanksgiving experience; the turkey, the stuffing and the dessert. What a decadent holiday. What a wonderful time....

View of Maurizio Cattelan: All at the Guggenheim
The exhibition brings together virtually everything the artist has produced since 1989 and presents the works en masse, strung seemingly haphazardly from the oculus of the Guggenheim’s rotunda. Perversely encapsulating Cattelan’s career to date in an overly literal, three-dimensional catalogue raisonné, the installation lampoons the idea of comprehensiveness. The exhibition is an exercise in disrespect: the artist has hung up his work like laundry to dry.
To say I am no longer in Vermont is quite an understatement;

Well at last we have to say goodbye to this lovely place. Vermont...,Vermont, The ladies and I went out with a bang dancing to some tunes during studio cleanup, wrapped up in what was meant for the artworks.....so much fun.
A tribute to lady liberty

The thing about travelling, I love and enjoy the most is discovering little nooks of culture. Museums have been around for a while; I would say they came about because someone wanted to preserve their culture in one form or another. While sometimes it’s didactic, some museums have a little eccentricity to them. The museum of everyday life is small, but contains things of a bygone era. Some things would probably provoke nostalgia and others well….they probably would do nothing for anyone. It’s all a matter of taste. The pieces in the museum I found most fascinating are the matches. There was the U.S Army Base collection, the California nightclubs collection and the Anchorage Alaska collection. They are three collections from the vast holdings of the McCaw-Cook archives, vintage and examples of fine printing and classic advertising imagery of a bygone era. I don’t really know how long they date back……
