Seeing Art, NYC

Heard by Nick Cave at Grand Central, wow!  The MTA, Arts for Transit
program put on this wild show and the dancers from Alvin Ailey made it come to life.

Then I headed West to Chelsea, where Gagosian Gallery 
is putting on a amazing show of paintings by Basquiat.

Then on Sunday, I headed out to the Brooklyn Museum to 
see the exhibit of Ghana artist, El Anatsui.  His use of recycled metal to create beautiful metal quilts that hang from the ceiling, as massive paitings on the walls, and large scale sculptures on the floor.

Some wonderful samples of his work.  The exhibit was truly intriguing.  They have videos throughout sharing the artist's vision.
