The Big Egg Hunt, NYC




These giant eggs at Rockefella Center are part of the Big Egg Hunt presented by Fabregé. They are decorated and fabricated by artists including people I had heard of and not heard of likeWilliam Wegman, Marc Quinn, Ralph Lauren,  Jeff Koons, Tanya Minhas, Diane Von Furstenberg and more…
You can bid on these eggs and have one for yourself. The Auction proceeds go to 100% charity.

I love this idea for public temporary art. So much fun looking at all of them and searching for them.

Little Worlds, Archive collection of New York Historical Society


Visiting the New York Historical Society was a real treat and with a lunch at Caffe Storico. My uncle had won a gift certificate to the restaurant and shared it with us. The food and service were terrific and 
I loved the room.

We visited many great exhibits, including a film on the history of New York in 18 minutes. I never thought they could fit it all in there but they did and very well done at that. We visited some of the ongoing exhibits: 

Bill Cunningham: Facades, in 1968, photographer Bill Cunningham embarked on an eight-year project to document the architectural riches and fashion history of New York City.

The Black Fives, This exhibition covers the pioneering history of the African-American basketball teams that existed in New York City and elsewhere from the early 1900s through 1950's.

Homefront & Battlefield: Quilts & Context in the Civil War
To mark the 150th anniversary of the Civil War (1861-1865), the New-York Historical Society presents a groundbreaking traveling exhibition

The Archive collection is huge and fascinating of artifacts from the city of New York, they have everything from toys, paintings, signs, and more...
