friday favorites

friday favorites: may 8

I'm posting this week's favorites a day late because my bus to Cape Cod didn't have wifi as I was hoping. We'll call this a special edition of FF- the "home edition" if you will. Got lots of plans with family and friends for the next two days! It's good to be home and decompress a bit.

DO IT: Things to do this weekend in NYC
Climb around the new Met exhibit: Big Bambu. The exhibit, on the rooftop of the Met, is a wave-like sculpture built from bamboo that visitors are invited to walk over. Wear your sneakers, as the walking surface is uneven. Don't look down: the path is up to 40 ft from the rooftop in some parts- that's 100 ft above Central Park. Go on a sunny day and bring your camera!

Check out Future Development - a graffiti art exhibit downtown. The exhibit features work from the "founding fathers" of the art form who started in the 70's, up through present artists. The exhibit runs until the 13th- I'm going to try to get down there next week. Street art is a big inspiration for my L2R line, so it's something I'm very interested in.
