2) Favourite Art things….this was HAARD! I wanted to pick ONLY 3 and make them be totally different……BUT I COULDN'T!!!!!!!! So here is my choices…..

      A ) Paper Favourite: The Me Bird.



      The short film "The Me Bird" is described as "a free interpretation of the homonym poem by Pablo    
      Neruda. The inspiration in the strata stencil technique helps conceptualize the repetition of layers as
      the past of our movements and actions. If the video didn't play GO HERE to see it!

      B ) Mural Favourite...Anders Gjennestad aka Strøk just completed this new piece in Porsgrunn, a city and municipality in Telemark county, Norway.

      C ) Installation Favourite…..Michael shvo and paul kasmin gallery turned a gas station in New York City into a sculptural sheep pasture!!!!

This installation debuted to the public yesterday, 'sheep station' is a pop-up, surrealist landscape which sets dozens of sculpted farm animals fixed amongst gas pumps and fire extinguishers in a grass-filled getty station.
