If I were to name this week it would be things I never knew:

  1. I’d never heard of Sparks, or there 300 songs or five decade career. I have a lot of catching up to do. Glad I caught the documentary which is great, but their music is better
  2. Walking along the East River we discovered a park with seal sculptures- never saw it before…
  3. I’ve been a member of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden for at least ten years. I had never seen there little Brooklyn Walk of fame
  4. Lemon/lychee Thai iced tea- who knew how good Thai Iced Tea could be without condensed milk. This was SOOOOOO good
  5. Immersive Van Gogh was just a new and interesting way to look at the works of Van Gogh- I love when we take technology and use it to bring culture to a wider audience…plus…Starry Night on four walls surrounding you

Can’t wait to see what inspires me this week!!

  1. Jealous you have access to all of these wonderful things. I am planning a solo trip in the fall, destination yet to be decided, to go to a larger city and enjoy the wonderful museums, etc. The immersive Van Gogh sounds awesome.

    1. Van Gogh was fun and different. I think it will be the start of merging old and new and I’m excited to see what ideas come out of this.

  2. No Sparks? You wouldn’t believe it to look at me but I was quite a fan. 🙂 It must be ten years since I last thought of them but I’m now humming “This Town Ain’t Big Enough For The Both Of Us” as I type . . .

      1. I will look out for it. I am gradually revisiting the music of my youth. I saw Fish in an acting role a few months ago, which sent me back to “Kayleigh” and from then on I have been dipping back into You Tube.

  3. Isn’t it fun to discover things you never saw before in random places? We have an Immersive Van Gogh in SF and it looks very interesting but we haven’t been yet. Your Brooklyn sign made me think of the Art Library — are they open for you to go and look at my sketchbooks? I am working on another one to submit in August. LOL cute dog.

    1. You know, I need to check out if they reopened. I know my public library is open for browsing, but I need to check that out. I was supposed to go see that the week COVID canceled everything. I am on a mission now!!

    2. Ok. Apparently they’re open n weekends by appointment but for some reason I can’t schedule an appointment. I’m going to email them. What’s your sketchbook called?

  4. Beautiful photos. Seemed as if I was browsing a travel guide’s travel guide inside the travel agent ‘s office. I’ll have to check out that documentary. I love stumbling on hidden little cool things that are randomly put in front of you. Thank you!

    1. It’s really quite interesting. In nyc, they did it at pier 36, which is warehouse like. They set it up in three rooms…there’s a bunch of projectors on the ceiling and they distribute the “movie” around the room, floor to ceiling, and in the largest room it projects onto the floor. There are some reflective objects and such in the room which the images bounce off one another. As for displaying the work, the paintings will sort of morph into one another, or in the case of The Bedroom, the elements of the room slowly appear. I’m really loving how people are reimagining classic Images. A few months ago we went to a gallery which had recreated Goodnight Moon
