An Artist Treat

Was in NYC last week; weather beautiful and took in alot of new art. Went to the Whitney Bicentenial and was very disappointed. Few exhibits and drab color. Very amateurish videos; one making fun of another culture which I believe were New Guineans. Very crass. Won't get my expectations up for this show next year. Chelsea galleries don't disappoint. Lots of stuff to enjoy here. In general, this is the fast lane and one gets their batteries recharged with every encounter. There are galleries, pubs (it was St Pats) and eateries. High end boutiques with shoes that start at $595. It's fun imagining who buys these things. There is awe at the price of home made jeans and shoes. You have to feel good in them.
Flew there on the new Virgin America service to Kennedy. Great idea not to have carts in the isles and video to chat, order drinks, food, watch movies or TV, or to play games. The time from one coast to the other was very short. Cheap prices too.
