Fête Nationale

07 . 15 . 14

I was so busy enjoying my extra day off on Monday in Paris that I didn’t get a chance to post until late.  Better late than never I guess.  Bastille Day is known in France as Fête Nationale du 14 juillet or just let quatorze juillet.  It’s their Independence Day and they celebrate it with gusto […]

Fun at The Frick

10 . 26 . 13

If you’re looking for something fun to do this weekend, I highly recommend making a trip to The Frick Collection to see Vermeer, Rembrandt, and Hals: Masterpieces of Dutch Painting from the Mauritshuis. Well, first you should order timed tickets online so you don’t have to stand in the queue and then you should head […]

It’s cold again in New York and what better way to escape the weather than by visiting a museum.  I can’t wait to visit the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum for Color Moves: The Art and Fashion of Sonia Delauney which runs through June 5, 2011.  This show epitomizes one of my favorite blog topics which is how art, […]

I don’t normally like to visit museums on bright and sunny days but I may make an exception for the new Henri Cartier-Bresson exhibition that opens today at the Museum of Modern Art. Over 300 hundred photographs that span his amazing career will be on view until June 28, 2010. My favorites are his old […]

Chic in LA: The Getty

03 . 30 . 10

I didn’t spend all my time in LA shopping or visiting design stores, I did make time to visit the breathtakingly beautiful Getty Center museum. The museum was designed by architect Richard Meier and is perched on a hill overlooking the city and ocean, when you can see it through the smog, I mean fog. […]

Living in LA

03 . 18 . 10

Since I’m off to LaLa Land, I thought I’d take this time to post some great Los Angeles homes. This one belongs to the chic married couple Michael Govan and Katherine Ross and family. He’s the Director of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and she has worked in public relations for LVMH. […]

Does it ever warm up in Chicago? If it does, I may have to book a trip so I can see the Matisse exhibition that opens on March 20th at The Art Institute of Chicago. Matisse: Radical Invention 1913-1917 “examines what is without question the most innovative, momentous, and yet little-studied time in the artist’s […]

Tourist Time

09 . 05 . 09

Right about now, Stefan and I are probably in full tourist mode which will include a quick walk through of the Louvre. I know that’s not exactly possible but we’re going to give it our best shot! And while doing so, I’ll sure we’ll look just like the tourists in this Thomas Struth photo, albeit […]

Why Don’t You…

10 . 18 . 08

Why don’t you check out some of these amazing museum exhibitions this weekend now that they weather has turned cold! I still can’t believe I haven’t been down to the New Museum to check out the first American retrospective of artist Elizabeth Peyton‘s artwork. There are over 100 of her works on display so you […]
