This is basically one of the first 'posters' i ever put up. This is also where my relationships with street photographers began. OHAD, a DC photographer, took a picture of the two-headed monster. That picture was then used for the cover of the book, The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears by Dinaw Mengestu. OHAD's photos are beautiful! Daquella manera has been a long time DC street art photographer and documentarian. He gets it all! My best friend RELAX has a love for languages. Fluent in three, she explained to me that the chorus of the song that we were listening to in french said, "you are the prettiest flower in my garden". See more photos from this DC photographer here. Street art by DIABETIC and EVOL picture by Thorne Sirbak I love how art brings people together. One of the neatest things my art has brought me closer to, is photography. Here are some more works by local photographer Shaun Barrows.

A bunch of us painted up by the new base ball stadium last night with a project called Breaking Waves. AND we got to listen to the Billy Joel/ Elton John concert while we painted! Hold me closer, tiny dancer. Super fun with super fun peeps, like this dude who makes his own paint! Thanks Albus Cavus!
At a super fun dinner party tonight I got to reconnect with Maureen Andary, who performed at one of my earliest shows at Hospital for Horses and Dogs years ago. So much fun to hear her play again. You should try your hardest to see her July 12 at Wonderland- 8pm. I promise you will LOVE it.
This documentary tells the extraordinary story of Herbert Vogel, a postal clerk, and Dorothy Vogel, a librarian, who managed to build one of the most important contemporary art collections in history with very modest means. In the early 1960s, when very little attention was paid to minimalist and conceptual art, Herb and Dorothy quietly began purchasing the works of unknown artists. Devoting all of Herb's salary to purchase art they liked, and living on Dorothy's paycheck alone, they continued collecting artworks guided by two rules: the piece had to be affordable, and it had to be small enough to fit in their one-bedroom Manhattan apartment. Within these limitations, they collected over 4,000 pieces and proved themselves curatorial visionaries; most of those they supported and befriended went on to become world-renowned artists. Their circle includes: Sol LeWitt, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Richard Tuttle, Chuck Close, Robert Mangold, Sylvia Mangold, Lynda Benglis, Pat Steir, Robert Barry, Lucio Pozzi and Lawrence Weiner.
Inked Souls is an art show in the DC area, representing over 300 artists all over the world and showcasing their talent and name. This is the video from the last event. Look for my shoes and painting! hint- lots of pink and lace.
