Recently, the Happy Famous Artists were in town and they turned me on to the Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens.   Gail and I went on an urban adventure to sunny Queens and checked out a really cool exhibit entitled “Do It (Outside).”  [Side note: you can see more photos of this exhibit from Worley Gig, Happy Famous Artists or the official Socrates website by clicking the links above.]

If you are looking for a fun getaway from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, take the N train out to Queens and enjoy this beautiful park with nice views of the city and in addition, if sculptures are your thing, you are walking distance from the Noguchi Museum (more to come on that).

I met Tracey Emin after the presentation was over and despite the nasty weather, she was very nice.  She even let me get under her umbrella to stay dry whilst we took a photo.  Thanks Tracey!
