My Manhattan experience was rich for the places I explored but, museums or not
— New York IS art —
from the outdoor sculptures in parks
to the buildings themselves
and their ornamentation, inside and out...
|(even the bathrooms!)|
or the magnificent (or mundane) murals that surprise you
to the call from El Museo del Barrio
to have its neighbors share their art — and what great treasures they shared!
|(I know it's hard to read but these are these "charms" are the ten commandments)|
including this one-of-a-kind thrift-store chair that screams
to the tremendous art one can find in any thrift store (though Housing Works shops are my special favorites and I bought this etching with the money my daughter gave me for Mother's Day)
YOU GOTTA HAVE ART!!
...And finally to the unique and wearable art created by the lovely Irene Kean (?) I met (quite appropriately) in the American Folk Art Museum during one of my adventures.
THE FACT IS: It's New York and
art is all around you...
From New York City Center
to spectacular Radio City Music Hall —
let's just admit — I LOVE NEW YORK!
(And I hope you do, too...)
