Quick Helllloooooooooo

NYC has been a BLAST!! I have had so much fun trekking around the city and catching up with old friends. I have only been here 3 days, but it feels like WEEKS!

I had a chance to hit a few great exhibits. I made it to the MET, which as always, was just mind blowing. There was a Courbet exhibit, a Jeff Koons exhibit, AND a Jasper Johns exhibit going on. Each was so different, and left me very inspired!

There was an incredible Gustav Klimpt show at the Neue Galerie. Klimpt is one of my favorite artists and I loved seeing so many of his sketches. The audio tour was really fascinating.

I also went to the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. There was a great show on all things Rococo, and in the basement gallery they had a small exhibit called Multiple Choice: From Sample to Product which was drool-worthy! The cases were filled with pages of antique fabric samples, and 100 year old sketchbooks from interior designers, with the most amazing handwriting and drawings. You know I anted to glue down everything in the room!

This morning I am grabbing the train to Long Island. I hope y'all have a great weekend and week. I will share more when I return!
