“The Last Panda” by Rob Pruitt
May 8, 2013 was a special night in New York as there was the opening of the first new Jeff Koons exhibit in a decade in New York but also a one night pop up exhibit of “The Last Panda” by Rob Pruitt. The exhibit took place at 436 West 15th Street in a building that looked like it had been abandoned for quite a while. It was pitch black inside the space save for a light towards the back of the building that shone on 2 works by Rob Pruitt.
Rob Pruitt’s “The Last Panda”
Apparently the first 100 guests got free T-shirts and ice-cream but I was getting my Jeff Koons on so I missed it. But I am glad I saw the art because I love Rob Pruitt.

6 1/2 Avenue in NYC
6 1/2 Avenue in New York. It’s located between 54th and 55th street in Manhattan, between 6th and 7th Avenue. I was expecting to find wizards running into platform 9 3/4 like in Harry Potter on this street but instead, I found a bunch of drunks trying to find magic at the bottom of a bottle.

Kenny Scharf Mural on Washington and 13th Street in New York
New York has been very lucky these last few years to get so much great public art from Kenny Scharf. There’s a new mural on Washington and 13th Street across the street from the Standard Hotel. See it while supplies last!
