This last Friday the 5th I attended an art exhibit in Spanish Harlem, at one of my neighborhood's art galleries.
The Poets Den Gallery is a great art space that hosts multiple types of art events, in this case, the Solo artist is J.T. Liss.
An East Harlem based photographic artist, J.T. 's work consists of multiple photographic layers, merged together to create beautiful pieces of art that speak to the soul through visual storytelling.
J.T. talked about his work to exhibit attendees during a Q&A , where people asked him anything they wanted about his process, his thoughts and feelings about some of his pieces.
The show was attended by many neighborhood artists as well as members of the film industry, as for me, I attended with these hooligans -------------->>>>>>
J.T.'s work can be further seen in his website at:
"The Tribute in Light is an art installation of 88 searchlights placed next to the site of the World Trade Center to create two vertical columns of light in remembrance of the September 11 attacks. It is produced annually by The Municipal Art Society of New York. It initially ran as a temporary installation from March 11 to April 14, 2002, and was launched again in 2003 to mark the second anniversary of the attack. As of 2013, it has been repeated every year on September 11. It had been announced that 2008 would be its final year, but the tribute was continued in 2009. On December 17, 2009, it was confirmed that the tribute would continue through to the tenth anniversary of the attacks in 2011, but continued again in 2012. As of July 23, 2012, plans are underway for the National September 11 Memorial & Museum to assume the lease for the MTA property used during this tribute, and to begin transitioning operation of the tribute from the Municipal Art Society to the memorial foundation.."
So, Fashion Week is back at Lincoln Center, showing the best of what fashion has to offer.
Upcoming collections, avant- garde styles and what not.
While there are a lot of photo worthy outfits, accessories and personalities, there are always the random people who have nothing to do in fashion week, throw on something they consider to be fashionable, and lurk around Lincoln Center waiting to get their picture taken and become the new face of fashion.
Case in Point: The grinch who killed style.
This person, which I'm not quite sure whether it was a he or a she, but we'll say it was a she, was definitely defying the status quo.
By throwing on some not so traditional rags on she captivated the attention of a few bloggers and fashion reporters. While i was hoping to get some eye-catching beauties, I saw her doing "the rounds" and getting quite some attention..
I'm sure she will give a lot of do/don'ts reporters something to put in that don't list. Just sayin
No judgement tho,... i do give her an A for effort. ;)
