Murakami exhibit = excellent!

Saturday, June 28th, 2008

I finally got down to the Murakami exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum . It was really great, right up my alley. He’s done some amazing things with bright colors and flat cartoony art, it really blew my mind. My favorite part is called ” So Many Flowers” which apparently (according to the description on the wall) also translates to “Cuteness! Summer vacation.”

It consists of a huge room wallpapered with brightly colored flower designs, in the middle of which is a flower sculpture and several flower paintings on the wall. It was very busy, bright, and beautiful. Almost psychedelic. Some visitors were heard to say that the room made them dizzy. ^_^ Of course I ended buying a cute flower pin that was in the gift shop on the way out.

MOCCA Art Fest was fun as usual, I debuted Dolltopia 2 and it had a very good response! I also presented the Lulu of the Year Award (congrats to winner Martina Fugazzotto) at the Lulu Awards which was fun and well attended. Great job Marion! I have a few pics from the event here:

Update: Tazza no longer carries the mocha sandwich T_T but they do still have a LOT of yummy desserts including a giant oreo which is quite similar. They also just opened a second location (also in Brooklyn Heights)  at 72 Clark St. Congrats to them!
