One of the most enjoyably clichéd ‘summer in the city’ activities is wondering around the Chelsea galleries on Thursday evenings. It’s a great excuse to actually get out there and see what’s happening on a smaller (but no less impressive) scale as opposed to the regular arty-haunts like the MET and MoMa. And let’s not kid ourselves- the free wine and fantastic photo ops alone are worth the trip downtown.
If you’re like me and find it hard to leave the comfort of your own neighborhood on days off, but don’t want to join the tourist-laden crowds of museum mile, pop into (my former neighbor!) Jeff Koons’ retrospective at The Whitney. Sadly this will be the final exhibition taking place in the Marcel Breuer building (75th) before the entire museum moves to the Meatpacking District in 2015.
Anyone who reads this blog knows that I have a major Woody Allen complex. With that in mind, it was incredibly exciting to go to the premiere of his newest film Magic in the Moonlight. Not only did it have all the goodness of a classic Woody film, but it also stared one of my favorite people, Emma Stone. Known for her quirkier roles, she always adds something endearing to every role and this film was no different. Plus, she brought along her entourage of beautiful men: boyfriend, Andrew Garfield (above), and my current man-crush, Dane Dehann (sadly, not pictured). Swoon.
Side note: I am very excited about my newest purchase pictured here on my bookshelf.
