This gallery is on Madison Avenue and is Israeli and it also has branches in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. The artist of this exhibition is named Craig Dershowitz and although there is no fence to buy anything, you can go see his works, which are refreshing. The asking price is burglary, but there was work I loved and so if you have time I recommend a brief visit to this part of the Madison Avenue. Right next door is a florist, a pleasure.
In the futuristic exhibits found in EPCOT is the Living with the Land attraction which is meant more for adults and dedicated to express the interaction of us and the land. This pavilion, even though it has undergone changes over many years, has kept the original idea of Walt Disney to be an area of research and creativity when applying technology. The research performed at the pavilion is attractive for production through horticultural technic in hydroponics, irrigation methods and pest management, the same as what is currently sponsored by Nestlé and the Department of Agriculture of the US. If you want to have a tour, it can be booked at the pavilion. It is an exhibition that offers entertainment and education.
All states have what is called a State Fair. In Kodiak it is held in late August or early September and is an opportunity for the whole town to come together and share things like recipes, vegetables, animals and typical Alaskan handicrafts. At the Kodiak fair there are always concerts and riding competitions. It's worth going to see the things on offer and eat the delicious local food.
This beautiful project was conducted by the Chicago Architecture Foundation. In the hall of the building of the foundation, we found a scale model of downtown Chicago, scheduled at the time to be on display until November 2010 (it was later extended due to its success). The city is shown in 3D, and in incredible detail. Our visit was short, but I could easily have spent hours admiring the amazing model.
Las Vegas has something more than hotels and gambling ... art. When I was there, a bus guide told me about First Friday which as the name suggests, takes place on the first Friday of every month. The event began in the house of a local artist, who opened her home to show her work to the neighbors. Then it grew ... and today there are 20 blocks of houses and open studios with works on display. We went downtown, and it didn't feel like a safe neighborhood, but it's known for the number of artists who live there, and the First Friday event united everyone! It's a really interesting event with so much art, not at all what we expected from Las Vegas.
Millenium Park, apart from being the heart of the city, is a cultural space that brings together all kinds of exhibitions and events. These huge, modern sculptures can be found outside in the Boeing Galleries. Made of various materials such as plastic and steel, they are contemporary art sculptures made by Chinese artists including Sui Jianguo, Zhan Wang, Shen Shaomin, and Chen Wenling.
Located near the southern entrance of Arches National Park near Moab, Utah, the Visitor Center is one of the most interesting and comprehensive of all the centers we've seen in parks in the American West. You'll find a well-stocked shop and and fascinating exhibitions explaining the history of the park. You can also watch a short, twenty-minute film all about the park.
VAEA is the Venezuelan American Endowment for the Arts. This dream began over 20 years ago, supported by people who believe in the transformative power of art and culture as agents of change. It supports visual arts, performance, dance, music and short films. Each year the Paez Medal of Arts is awarded and winners have included the Venezuelan master of "Op Art" Carlos Cruz Diez and the American Robert Wilson. The enterprise is found right in the Financial District, where you can find information about upcoming events and activities.
Next to the submarine USS Pampanito we found a very interesting exhibition about toys and arcade games from the 80's and even earlier! If it's still there, I highly recommend it. It's a great way to have some fun and play the classic games, going all the way back to Pong. I don't know if it's still there, but if it is, go for it!
Visitors to Central Park can't miss the symbol of true love, represented by the statue of Romeo and Juliet. Many New Yorkers have romantic meetings here, and it is often shown in movies. The two bodies in the statue come together in a romantic and eternal dance. J. Stuart Blackton was one of the first directors to tell the magnificent story of Romeo and Juliet on cinema screens in 1909 and set his version in Central Park.
We booked tickets to this exhibition in Paris last spring, and were refunded as it was censored by the city, so it was with great pleasure that I discovered it was now held in New York, at 11 Fulton Street in the South Street Seaport. Without hesitation, we bought tickets, and we were not disappointed. You'll need a strong stomach to see real human bodies from every angle, and sometimes the sights will freeze the blood in your veins, especially in the room dedicated to babies and fetuses. However, the technical prowess is amazing, and it's a wonderful exhibition. Not to be missed!

Located in the heart of the Galleries District, not far from Chelsea Market and the Hudson River, the Paula Cooper Gallery is one of the most iconic neighborhood galleries, and one of the most famous. It is also one of the most "accessible", and you can find some really interesting contemporary exhibits inside this refurbished warehouse. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and happy to explain the pieces ... lovers of modern art, go for it!
Near the statue of Alice in Wonderland in a street perpendicular to 5th avenue, the American Illustrator Gallery is housed in a very old house that has been beautifully decorated. Here you can find, as the name suggests, a great collection of illustrations by American artists. The entrance is a little hard to find, and it's not always open, but when it is, it's definitely worth a visit.
If you're going to the famous New York Public Library, why not follow the great writers? Walking from 41st to 5th avenue, you will follow what has been called the "Library Way", with metal plates embedded in the pavement holding quotes from famous authors. The plates are beautifully designed, and you'll end up moving very slowly, staring at the floor, oblivious to the impatient New Yorkers around you! At the end of your journey, you'll reach the quiet, majestic library building.
If you go to Page, Arizona, do not miss Antelope Canyon, a lovely canyon that has been polished by wind and water over the centuries. You might get lucky like me, and see a series of classic American cars in the parking lot and driving through the canyon!
Reverol & Co. is a gallery that focuses on emerging contemporary artists. In the photos you can see two works in wood by a young Venezuelan artist named Rafael Jaen. There are also interesting activities like discussions, lectures and other events.
