I just love the MoMa building in NYC. I feel the building is just as much a work of art as the art. Bill Brandt was a wonderful exhibit and one of my favs. I will have a few more photos tomorrow.

Pre-lunch art across from the Plaza Food Hall
We had lunch on our NYC trip at the Plaza Food Hall. This place is chock full of food choices and worth the trip. We all had sandwiches and salads. A perfect lunch before our trip to MoMA. I haven't been to MoMa in quite some time. It was a treat to revisit it. More photos soon

The after hours event at the Gardener Museum was a a night of art, food, and a bit of bass baritone. I will explain. We watched a demonstration on making leather goods by Emily Lamkin from Artisan's Asylum in Somerville. People were able to make thier own creations. Emily's work was beautiful (below)
We wondered over to the Gardener greenhouse and each were able to get a little pot, dirt and two nasturtium seeds. as you may know one of my favorite flowers. We put them in little sandwich bags to take home
We ate at the cafe and were treated to a happy birthday song by our waiter, Jared Levin, a bass-baritone. He sung for another table and it was fun to find out he was a singer, as well. We visited the gift shop and the Anders Zorn exhibit. It was a wonderful exhibit, sadly no photos allowed. Isabella Stewart Gardner was a patron and friend of this painter. Mom bought a magnet in the gift ship with one of his photos on it. Sweet! We left the event and walked back to the train but on the way...
We walked past this mapping of the Rhino in front of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. a young artist was projecting her light/photo show onto the Rhino. It was wonderful to see this work. Her name is Valeska Freire Marulanda. Her website is www.valeska.com. I love the skeleton artwork/mapping.
These photos don't do this work justice but I feel lucky we meet Valeska and were able to see her project. After watching her work for awhile, we decided it was time to head home. We walked by the Museum of Fine Arts. Much to our surprise we saw a little bunny running around the grounds. It was so cute!
This is why I love Boston. You can stumble upon artful and fun things as well as attend fun nights such as the After Hours events. This is a long post but I feel that it is needed. Last week was horrible and has really affected Boston.

Mom and I attended the Isabella Stewart Gardener museum after-hours event. There was art, crafting and flowers. The new part of the museum you are allowed to take photos, including the greenhouse. I love the nasturtiums. They are one of my favorite flowers. More tomorrow on our adventure

Chelsea Market in Manhattan. I finally got to visit the this shopping and restaurant space. It was hard to choose something to eat. I loved watching the donut making. Very yummy looking!
