I❤️NY

After a bonkers, non-stop six weeks of work, I took three days for myself and bounced up to NYC for a little decompression time. The Mapplethorpe exhibition at the Guggenheim, a photowalk around Harlem, a morning at the Met Cloisters, and time with lots of friends made for a nice time.

The National Museum of Women in the Arts is the only museum in the world dedicated exclusively to recognizing the contributions of women artists, and today they invited a group of local creatives to view their latest exhibition, Women House, and walk with Assistant Curator Orin Zahra, to learn more about the works featured.

In late December I was invited to an after-hours tour of Tudor Place's holiday exhibition. A few days later I went back during daylight hours to photograph the estate again.

Yestereday I was allowed early access to Studio Gang and the National Building Museum's summer spectacle, Hive. You should definitely have it on your summer to-do list.

Julian and I were invited to the Building Museum this morning to check out Wright on the Walls, a room-sized coloring book featuring Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture, The Architecture of an Asylum: St. Elizabeths 1852-2017, and the setup for Hive, which opens July 4th.

Glenstone \\ Roni Horn

I spent the day at Glenstone yesterday for the media preview of the new Roni Horn exhibition, which opens today and runs through January 28, 2018. I can't say enough good things about Glenstone, the hospitality of their staff, and Roni Horn's work, itself.

In the Tower: Theaster Gates at the NGA

One of the absolute best things about living in DC is having access to so many museums. Even better is getting to hear the artists, themselves, discuss their work, what it means to them, and what inspired them to create it. Today I was invited to listen to Theaster Gates talk about his new exhibition at the National Gallery of Art.

Last night I was invited to the Hirshhorn for a special preview of Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors. Kusama's work is way more than the sum of its parts. I mean, I was standing there thinking, "I'm basically inside a mirrored plywood box with some lights WHY AM I FEELING SO MANY FEELINGS?"

The 34th annual Smithsonian Craft Show opens to the public Thursday, April 21, at 10:30am, at the National Building Museum. A group of us were invited for a behind the scenes preview on Wednesday. To be honest, I was astounded by the artists and their work. From a pool of 1100 applicants, 121 artisans, including Dale Chihuly, were selected. So put aside whatever comes to mind when you hear the words "craft show" and check this out.
