'OOF' by Edward Ruscha, 1962. Part of the MoMA's, 'Here Is Every' exhibit, 2008
Created by John McCracken in 1967 this is The Absolutely Naked Fragrance, made of plywood covered with fiberglass and resin. It's Pink. It's at The MoMA in NYC and it looks like a big stick of gum! It is really a laquered monochrome "plank" made to look like a surfboard. McCracken was interested in the 1960's southern California culture and aesthetic.
Back in November I visited The MoMA with a friend who was visiting me, and I we got excited over the Joan Miró exhibit because we both love speaking spanish! But the Exhibit itself, titled, Anti-Painting, wasn't all that interesting. The entrance was though.
DUMBO stands for "Down Under The Manhattan Bridge Overpass". It is a town on the edge of Brooklyn that is located under and between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge overpasses. You can take a walk over the Brooklyn Bridge (like they do in Sex & The City, ha!) and then take a shortcut to get to DUMBO, where are there are lots of unique local shops, restaurants, cafes, art studios, book stores and more. I personally love to visit powerHouse Books on Main Street, right by the Brooklyn Bridge Park. There is a cool little theater called Galapagos and a sugary smelling cafe called The Almondine nearby. DUMBO is also the setting of some Gossip Girl scenes. They show a peek of it in 27 Dresses as well!
