New York | Art + Culture

I'm headed to New York later this week to celebrate my boyfriend's Birthday and our nine year anniversary.  I have these notebooks filled cities and places I want to visit and in them I keep a list of stores, restaurants and museums.  This week I plan to share bits and pieces of my NYC list with you.  I arrive Thursday morning and have the whole day to roam around the city by myself before Paul arrives.  Below are a few of the galleries, exhibitions and parks I hope to visit.  I'll share my shopping and dining plans later this week!

18 Wooster Street - Chanel's Little Black Jacket exhibition features more than 100 black-and-white photographs of figures including Sarah Jessica Parker, Kanye West, Yoko Ono and Tilda Swinton wearing Chanel jackets that were made specifically for the photos. The photos will also be made into a book to be released later this summer.

Julie Gaul Gallery - I'm dying to see Maira Kalman's work in person

The High Line - Located on Manhattan’s West Side, this historic elevated freight rail line turned public park, seems perfect for a Sunday morning stroll

The Kips Bay Decorator Show house - I'm hoping to make it to the house before it closes on Thursday -- I just need to see this office in person! 

The Met - Visiting the Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is a priority. It sounds fascinating. Since Elsa Schiaparelli died in 1973, she and Miuccia Prada never actually met. The exhibit explores the idea of them having "impossible conversations" about the similarities between their fashions. The Ellsworth Kelly Plant Drawings exhibit is also on display.

The Pace Gallery + Pace Prints - Pace Prints is a publisher of contemporary fine art prints as well as a gallery that exhibits and offers for sale a wide variety of prints by contemporary artists from the 1960s to the present.  They sell prints by some of my favorite artists like Donald Baechler and Robert Mangold.
