Floating Island To Travel Around Manhattan Island

Floating Island
Just got back from the launch celebration of Robert Smithson’s “Floating Island To Travel Around Manhattan Island” on Pier 45 in the far West Village. This Art event promises to be one of those quintessential New York experiences not unlike Christo and Jean-Claude’s Gates Project seen just over six month’s ago in Central Park. 2005 may be remembered as "the year Conceptual Art went mainstream."

Last Chance to see the Matisse: The Fabric of Dreams @ The Met.

This is a totally enjoyable exhibit of the paintings of Henri Matisse displayed alongside many fabrics from the painter;s private collection. In some cases, the fabrics are more beautiful than the paintings. If you get a chance to see it before it closes on the 25th of September, you won’t regret it. Matisse: The Fabric of Dreamsis a quiet and elegant presentation of overwhelming beauty.
