Some Art Bites of the Big Apple: NYC

I just returned from an “art excursion” to New York City. It goes without saying that New York is the place to see all kinds of art. Here are a couple of “Art Bites” that I recommend in case you can get there in person or online.

The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD), 2 Columbus Circle, is one of my favorite art museums in NYC. I have never been disappointed by the exhibitions there. Currently there is a particularly compelling exhibit that I highly recommend:
Swept Away: Dust, Ashes, and Dirt in Contemporary Art and Design, thru August 12, 2012

Another gem I discovered more recently is the Ford Project, 57 west 57th Street, 19th and 20th Floor http://www.fordproject.com/
Two great shows there, one for horse lovers and one for rock music lovers.

Always powerful and very moving for me is the beautiful mosaic design of the Imagine Memorial to John Lennon in Central Park at 72nd Street. If you go to see it, take the time to read the inscriptions on the nearby park benches.
