We spent a delightful day at the NYBG where 17 rarely seen Hawaiian paintings by Georgia O’keeffe are on display. The Conservatory is adorned with flowers and plants from Hawaii that influenced these works. The show is on thru October 28th and I encourage you to visit. Don’t miss the short video and of course the paintings (in the Mertz Library) which explains why she went and how she was inspired by the islands.

I love art and I love cats and dogs. Inserting my three cats – Madison, Audrey and Roberta and now, Jack the Dog into famous masterpieces is just plain fun. For those on facebook you can become a fan of Audrey and Roberta with Jack the Dog and join 300 other fans and follow their adventures each day.

portraitFrida Kahlo – Art – Garden – Life at the NY Botanic Garden has been a blockbuster show with over 750,000 people attending over the past few months. We went early on a beautiful sunny day and had the place almost to ourselves. The Haupt Conservatory has been re-imagined as Casa Azul, the home she shared with Diego Rivera in Mexico City. The Mertz Library features 14 original works (no photography allowed – so we took mental pictures). If you cannot make it to the Garden by November 1st, enjoy today’s montage.FRIDA

A branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Cloisters is located in beautiful Fort Tryon Park, overlooking the Hudson River. The museum and gardens are devoted to the art of medieval Europe. I love this place.  It is a quick trip on the A train and a lovely walk through the park.  On your way to the Cloisters, do not forget to stop and have a fabulous lunch at the New Leaf Cafe.  The cafe is a part of Bette Midler’s NYRP which is a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming open space in underserved communities to create a greener, more sustainable New York City. In partnership with the City of New York, NYRP is also leading MillionTreesNYC – an initiative to plant and care for one million new trees throughout New York City’s five boroughs by 2017.  All proceeds from the New Leaf Cafe support New York Restoration Project’s mission of turning forgotten spaces into growing places.

A visit to the Metropolitan Museum’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden through November 4th will allow you to see Argentinian artist Tomás Saraceno ‘s Cloud City.  This installation is fun, spatially disorienting and well worth your time.
