I know that this is technically a fashion blog, but I also consider it a travel and lifestyle blog. A huge part of my travels (and lifestyle I guess) is dedicated to the arts. I love music and art, they are facets of my life that define a huge part of who I am. That being said, I wanted to share something non-fashion related today: my latest trip to the MOMA (Museum of Modern Art). I have been to this museum an uncountable amount of times, but if I had to guess- close to 100 times. Yeah… I mean it I really like art, and I always have.
These are a few of the pieces that I love the most, some Suerat, a little Rousseau, and a dash of Andy Warhol for good measure. I also saw Tilda Swinton in a glass box sleeping (meditating? napping?) I’m not entirely sure what this was all about, since when I read about it last week I decided not to believe that Tilda Swinton was actually spending hours laying down in a glass box for the public to view her. But- yes, I can in fact confirm that she was there doing just that, I saw her and I’m pretty baffled by it. It is a “piece” titled “The Maybe”, google it… I guess there in lies the point of art- to make you think, talk, and guess. Maybe there is no point at all and that is what is profound about it. It is something we have done for thousands upon thousands of years that is often purely for enjoyment, isn’t that incredible?
On Saturday I had the chance to head to New York City for the week! I love it here, it is truly one of my favorite places on earth. In some way, I feel that I have done a lot of my growing up here. My roots are here since my mom is from New York, and because of that I have accumulated years here through all of my trips. I can remember the first time I heard a cab driver curse loudly at JFK airport, and the first pretzel I indulged in streetside. For some, I suppose this city is too much, with the yelling, honking, and flashing lights. But for me, this city is home; all of it’s strengths, all of it’s flaws, they are all things that have come to make me feel at home.
