The Lightning Field (1977)

I have always wanted to visit Walter De Maria's Land Art work.  Titled "The Lightning Field" and located in New Mexico, the large rectangular land grid consists of 400 stainless steel poled in order to catch lightning.  The piece was comissioned, and now maintained, by Dia Art Foundation.  You must make advanced reservations in order to visit the site... I want to go!

Henry Geldzahler

Henry Geldzahler, after graduating from Harvard in 1960 went to work at the MET, Metropolitan Museum of Art.  There he became the Curator for American Art and later the first Curator for 20th Century Art.  He loved art but more than that he loved the artists who created the art.  Geldzahler, who liked to be known as "Henry, just Henry", had a special relationship with the contemporary artists of the time.  Known for his youthful vibrance and fun loving spirit, Henry spent most of his time associating with artists such as Hockney, Stella, Warhol, de Kooning, Kline and Johns.  Some of his greatest contributions were bringing contemporary art to the MET, his amazing eye in art and his 1969 exhibition New York Painting and Sculpture: 1940-1970.  The New York Painting and Sculpture: 1940-1970  show, also known as "Henry's Show", showcased over 400 works from 43 artists.  He received mixed criticism for the show but it has become a legendary success throughout time in the art world. 

This is my favorite piece curated in his show.  It is called Spectrum V by Ellsworth Kelly.  Henry asked Kelly to paint a spectrum especially for the 1969 show.  He worked for months calling the work one of his greatest challenges.  He wanted to create the perfect spectrum which would naturally carry the spectator's eye down the wall.

Watch this movie on him it's great!

I want to ride my bicycle

While I was home in Phoenix I was dying to go bar hopping via bicycles (: Anyway, whether riding to bars in Tel Aviv or riding the board walks in San Diego - bike riding is great especially on a killer ride.... How cute is this one!!
Urban Outfitters has teamed up with the Florida company, Republic Bikes which lets you customize your own bike (everything from the seat to the color of the tires).

worth the wait

My mom and I had to wait two and a half hours to be seated at Pizzeria Bianco when we went, which really means my mom and I had to drink bellinis (mmm... champagne and peach nectar) for two and a half hours at Bar Bianco. (:  Finally we were seated and we had the most amazing pizza (really though).  Toppings: parmesan, pistachios, rosemary, red onions.  Delicious!
