WW181: BILLY EICHNER, TAKD DESIGN and THE WATER TANK PROJECT

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday this week.
Here are the five things I want you to LOVE this week!!!!

1.) LET'S GO TO NYC!!!!! Come on guys! (I know….like I need an excuse to want to go to there!!) "The Water Tank Project" is part art exhibition and part social awareness campaign that transforms 300 rooftop water tanks in New York City into original works of art.








Filmmaker Mary Jordan, who came up with the idea for the project, sees the initiative as a chance to educate people about the global water issues. "Understand that we have to reduce our plastic waste, reduce our meat consumption and really conserve our water," she said. Over 100 water tanks will be wrapped with art by acclaimed artists such as John Baldessari, Jeff Koons, Maya Lin, Andy Goldsworthy and even NYC public school students.

VIDEO HERE!

2.) I NEEEEEED one (or two) of these…..(hint hint…husband ;-) THIS BOW TIE!!!!


TAKD Design, from Detroit makes this awesome tie! Each tie is made from solid timber, then "sanded and finished in-house using CNC routing and woodworking methods to ensure quality control."


 But which one????? That is the question!
(go here to BUY one -- like the "Wenge" with maybe a couple of straps like the "Mack" or the "Woodard"!!!!!!! ;-)
(thanks again to Design Boom for stoking the fires of my mental illness!)
