Noguchi at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Saturday I spent the afternoon strolling though the Brooklyn Botanic Garden to view the Isamu Noguchi exhibit which is on view through December 13.

I live near the Garden and visit a few times a year, usually in the spring for cherry blossoms or summer when the flora is in full bloom.  I was surprised to see how beautiful the landscape is during the late fall.  There were still roses and other flowers blooming, gourds hanging from trellises, fall foliage, etc.  It made a perfect backdrop for Noguchi’s work!

Upon entering we picked up a secondary map showing where the various sculptures were displayed.  The map was not exactly precise so it made finding some of the work a fun game.  I felt like I was embarking on a treasure hunt where each station provided a new visual reward!  The work, the setting, on an overcast, grey day was very inspiring!

The Garden was quite crowded due to a children’s Halloween festival.  It was sweet to see all the young kids running around in costume.  My reward was a pint of Six Point Oktoberfest which definitely hit the spot!

Ai Weiwei at the Brooklyn Museum

Last night the Brooklyn Museum hosted a members reception for the opening of Ai Weiwei: According to What which will be open though August 10.

Ran into neighbors and close friends Maruchi Santana and John Parham.  Check out their branding firm Parham Santana.  Super creative people.  Maruchi has an amazing aesthetic and sense of color, John is always ready to share his latests cocktail recipe.

I digress, if you are in traveling distance to the great state of Brooklyn, go see this show!!!

(The images below do the art absolutely no justice.  I am hesitant to include them.)
