art is where you find it


No trips to NY planned this week, but I was so busy last week that I didn't have a chance to post some walking-around-NY art pix from the previous weekend.

This one stopped me cold and it wasn't till I took the picture that I saw what it was.  I'm still not sure what the drawing material was. Paint? Chewing gum? It doesn't matter.
                                Seen from the High Line, set amidst industrial buildings and corrugated roofs.
 This was the design going up on high-end condos being built, I think in Chelsea. The artist Yayoi Kusama is the one with the polka dots whose work was recently at the Whitney and at Louis Vuitton in a previous post.
 A couple of other buildings that caught my eye, as well.  This one, from the High Line.
 And this very elegant CVS pharmacy, which resembled none I have ever seen before.
 Later, walking through Greenwich Village, I spotted this image written in light on the sidewalk.
When I looked up, I saw its genesis.  How very cool is that??
Art is everywhere - you just have to look.

Great photos, Rayna. Art is everywhere....whether it be in the city or a natural landscape. All we have to do is open our eyes to it!

I walked the High Line for the first time this spring. What a wonderful space in the city it is. I saw that CVS as well. Not sure when I'm getting back this year. Daughter is coming in for my dad's 90th. Maybe another December visit. I love the holiday crazy.
