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

Dale Chihuly, the Seattle-based glass artist, is hard to escape.

Photographer/Filmmaker Documents Port Authority Bus Terminal

It could be argued that New York City herself was the artist of the latest exhibit inside the Port Authority Bus Terminal. She’s certainly the subject. And possibly the medium. It’s all in how you look at it. “PABT Time Lapse 2017” is the exhibit of Tony Gregory, local bartender and photographer. His bar is […]

Fast Forward: Painting From the 1980s

Last Friday, the Whitney Museum of American Art opened a brand new exhibit called Fast Forward: Painting From the 1980s. Those who enjoy risqué and political art will find the exhibit most enjoyable. It’s certainly not your average run-of-the-mill exhibit. In fact, it’s virtually unheard of for any high-end museum to showcase art from the […]
