New York City Squirrels, Tony Bennett, Nick Cave, Noah Becker w/ Jim D’Amato, Salomon Contemporary, +++ all during UN week New York 2011.

By | September 26th, 2011|Art of Consumption, Art Shows, Gallery and Museums Visits, YouTube Videos|

Our trip to New York City started out with a bang; an exhilarating cab ride w/ a mid-trip, hit-and-run accident involving another car. It sounds terrible, but as a result of this fast paced, and irresponsible driving maneuver, I immediately fell in love with NYC. I'm not sure if there was any extra chaos since [...]

Lahaina Town (Maui) Art Galleries

By | February 19th, 2010|Art of Consumption, Gallery and Museums Visits|

Our trip to Maui in February was much less jam packed with adventure than usual. My vacation itineraries usually role out like a minute by minute logistical report with marching bands and scheduled time for rest. But this trip saw lots of swimming, snorkeling, and reading. Wash, rinse, repeat. We did, however, manage to see [...]
