Al ffffing Pacino!  Whoa!  Pacino is one of the greatest actors of my generation and seeing him in person is an amazing experience.  He’s been in so many movies that have rocked my world including “The Godfather,” “Scarface” and “Scent of a Woman,” I could go on and on.  If you live in New York, you should not miss your chance to see Al Pacino in the flesh in a revival of “Glengary Glen Ross,” which is playing on Broadway for a 10 week limited run.  See a legend in person and get your tickets here!  Thanks again Al.  It was a pleasure to meet you!

In Your Face by Fumero. Now showing at 17 Frost in Brooklyn through September 10, 2011

Although I’ve written about street artist Fumero many times before, it wasn’t until I attended his latest solo show “In Your Face” where I realized what Fumeroism is all about.  The show, which takes place at 17 Frost Gallery in Brooklyn builds on his iconic “Table Series Logo” that is seen all over NYC and beyond.  This time, instead of faceless people sittting around the dinner table, the faces are alive with the vivid colors Fumero uses. As you peruse the gallery, you’ll reaffirm your definition of what family means.

In addition to the familes (that are on enormous canvases), there’s an icons section that features Fumero’s colorful vision of people from Slick Rick to Gandhi to Marilyn Monroe.  One of my favorites was Al Pacino (pictured below).

The opening night reception was a rager and the closing night reception on 09/10/11 promises to be the same.  The closing party will take place during the day, so don’t miss it.  17 Frost Gallery is located at 17 Frost in Brooklyn.

Happy Birthday, Al Pacino

I love Al Pacino!  The actor celebrates his birthday today.  Usually a nice guy.  Can’t say the same about his signature but I think he deliberately scribbles so it has no value on E-bay.  I like that logic.

Also born today: Jazz great Ella Fitzgerald and news anchor Edward R. Murrow.
