Street Wear in NYC

Hello Sunday Friends! Had the opportunity to take in the MOMA exhibit of Willem DeKooning with my friend, Irene. It was a beautiful collection of 200 pieces of most unique and colorful works of art in the Painters career.  During the  mad dash through NYC  to catch the exhibit before the crowds arrived, I was able to catch a few street shots of a peaceful Manhattan!  The city is always eye candy no matter where you look!  Have a great day today!   

Street Wear

This is the first major museum exhibition devoted to the full scope of the career of Willem de Kooning, widely considered to be among the most important and prolific artists of the 20th century. The exhibition, which will only be seen at MoMA, presents an unparalleled opportunity to study the artist’s development over nearly seven decades, beginning with his early academic works, made in Holland before he moved to the United States in 1926, and concluding with his final, sparely abstract paintings of the late 1980s. Bringing together nearly 200 works from public and private collections, the exhibition will occupy the Museum’s entire sixth-floor gallery space, totaling approximately 17,000 square feet.

Making its debut in the Sculpture Garden is Figurengruppe/Group of Figures, by contemporary German artist Katharina Fritsch (b. 1956). Conceived in 2006–08, the work features nine life-size sculptures of, among other figures, St. Michael, a Madonna, a giant, and a snake, all rendered in precise detail and finished in bold colors.
