A day in the big city
The Harada family spent Saturday in Brooklyn. Even though we live less than a mile as the crow flies from the New York City border, I rarely get over there. It’s really nice that my husband now has Saturdays off because I am looking forward to more weekend family outings like the fun day we had on Saturday!
First we went to see the Murakami show at the Brooklyn Museum. It was the last weekend of the exhibit and so many people showed up! Here we are in front of a huge statue in the lobby.
I censored my stainy uncute shirt with a Murakami floating head. Sometimes mommies just have to leave the house looking uncute.
The exhibit was pretty cool, but we were most fascinated by the graveyard of architectural details that was located behind the museum parking lot. Doesn’t this guy look funny nestled between the foliage? I wonder how old he is.
More “graveyard” pics on my flickr.
After the museum, we headed over to RIME where a few of my creatures are on display as part of the “In It For The Munny” show. No, my guys have nothing to do with Munnys really. I was just asked by Neil, the artist who customized the Munnys, to display a few guys because he likes my work. Isn’t that so very nice?
And aren’t his customizations rad? There are so many teeth in this picture! The walls at RIME are made of this awesome layered stuff that is made out of sugar cane and a bunch of different kinds of wood.
My son recognized The Rainbow Mother right away and grabbed her and started flying her around the store! He didn’t want to leave her there and cried a little when I put her back on the shelf. I guess I need to make more creatures for my own kids. They don’t have very many of them at all. Like the cobbler’s kids with no shoes, ya know. It’s nice to know he likes them though. For the first few years, he wasn’t much of a fan.
To top off the day, we had some tasty Indian food at Raga which was one block up from RIME. I must look up how to make mango lassis at home. They are so yummy!
I thought it was nice that they had this breastfeeding art hanging up at the Indian restaurant. Do I look crazy? That’s what happens to me at the end of a long day out in the big city.
