Basquiat at The Broad

I have always appreciated the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat. In fact, I wrote my undergrad art history thesis about the public perception of his racial identity to his work. At The Broad, it was inspiring to see Basquiat’s work in a dedicated section. Must-see section of their permanent collection gallery!

Jasper Johns: ‘something resembling truth’

‘something resembling truth’ surveys the work of Jasper Johns over six decades of artwork. His work is a signature to American art history and is considered one of America’s greatest artists. A collaboration with the Royal Academy in London, Jasper Johns: ‘Something Resembling Truth’ will be at The Broad through May 13.

NYBG Orchid Show 2018

I had such an amazing time at the Orchid Show located on the grounds of the New York Botanical Garden in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. It was beautiful and serene! The floral art installations of Daniel Ost celebrated the complex and stunning beauty of orchids. I walked away with a new appreciation for orchids!

Come to The Bronx to enjoy more of their beautiful grounds!!!

Between The World and Me

 

Between The World and Me is a phenomenal book that was transformed into a production by the same name for two nights in NYC and one night at the Kennedy Center in DC. This breathtaking performance was a moment in history I will not forget. With actors and performances reading Coates’ words, you were inspired and disgusted with the reason why he had to write this book to his son. I felt so much awe at the brilliance of the production and feel an incredible duty as an Educator to continue the work of equity and justice.
