it was a beautiful weekend in philly and my distractions were equally fantastic!
charline von heyl paintings...they were energetic and textural and BIG. the show upstairs was called "blowing on a hairy shoulder/grief hunters" and the video piece by gilad ratman was both cool and icky. it involved a lot of mud. i took a picture of my notes after viewing it three times - where i wrote "totally engaging and totally gross."
they don't let you take pictures in the galleries so i took a photo of myself in the (also artsy) ladies room. my friend bri said that this is not taboo! hey, my shirt matched the stalls. hmmm...i wonder what the men's room looks like?
2. sweet freedom bakery = cinnamon buns!
YES YES YES...they had the cinnamon buns and i ate my rich delicious gooey treat quite quickly...along with a chocolate glazed doughnut and i am not going to apologize for my gluttony. in fact, i realized that i have a lot of treat-less youth to make up for!
well, i was right to expect digging...and dig i did. although i did not find a new (used) winter coat, i did find a some funky woolen blazer type jackets. and it was a nice destination in my old 'hood: fishtown/kensington...which has certainly notched up the curb appeal.
i hope you had a fun weekend as well!
