‘Dogumenta’: The Art Exhibit By Dogs for Dogs

Rocky is a Maltese mix, a ten-pound little scruff of a fellow rescued by art critic Jessica Dawson. And she thinks very, very highly of him. “I was surprised to see that Rocky could sniff out some of the best artwork in New York,” Ms. Dawson said in a statement to The New York Times about […]

From now through September 3rd, Shrine is hosting an eerie exhibition called “Another Place.” It is a collection of very loosely figurative work by a dozen painters and multimedia sculptors.

3-D Image Installation Pays Tribute to New York City’s Street Vendors

There’s something special about street food in New York City, and it’s not really the food at all. It’s the people, the tough-as-nails community of vendors running the cars and vans that sell hot dogs, pretzels, crepes, and gyros. They hawk their goods on strategically-chosen corners, some staking out a particular site for years at […]

Maureen Gallace Exhibit Receives Rave Reviews

Maureen Gallace, of Connecticut and New York, has probably always been an artist, but she was thirty when she began exhibiting her works. She paints on small canvases, little portraits of beaches, hillsides, and houses from her native New England, but no people.

New Art Exhibit Addresses Racial Segregation in America’s Schools

In Brown v. Board of Education, the Supreme Court ruled that it was unconstitutional to segregate school children by race. But today, more than sixty years later, school segregation appears to be on the rise.

Interactive ‘Hansel and Gretel’ Exhibit Recreates the Feeling of Being Watched

Shambling around in a large, dark space with uneven floors and walls sounds like a particularly avant-garde brand of art installation. Over-head, flying drones buzz unseen while you bumble into your fellow art appreciators. And on the floor below you, the only light in the room projects your own path. The projections are an infrared […]

The Summer of Love Turns 50

This summer marks the 50th anniversary of San Francisco’s Summer of Love, a cultural phenomenon that took place in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood in 1967 but was reflected across the world. Depending on who you talk to, it was either a fleeting moment of the counterculture hippie extravaganza already going on at that time—or it was […]

The ‘CHIHULY’ Exhibit is Now Open at the New York Botanical Garden

Dale Chihuly, the Seattle-based glass artist, is hard to escape. It seems like every large airport, hotel, and hospital in the country have at least a few pieces of his distinctive flower- or sea-life-themed glass work on display. And now, a new installation is being added to that total. “CHIHULY,” a new exhibit at the […]

Adrián Villar Rojas Has a Rooftop Exhibit at the Met

Adrián Villar Rojas, Argentinian artist and worldwide exhibitor, was exploring the Metropolitan Museum of Art when he was struck by the way that the museum, any museum, removes things from daily life and “freezes” them. “In some way or another, I wanted to play with the doodles of culture,” the thirty-seven-year-old said of his project […]
