Art and the park






My last post about NYC wouldn't be complete without a bit about the Museum of Arts and Design in Columbus Circle. I loved this museum it was really inspirational. It's not a big museum but it is full of really great design. There is a fantastic exhibit, Object Factory: The Art of Industrial Ceramics which was gorgeous. Again here's me with the three-year-old in tow looking at fine art, this time with porcelain laying all around. Not as relaxing as it could have been but mind blowing just the same. It's a collaboration between modern designers and some of the oldest porcelain manufactures in the world and the results are stunning. Old meets new here and something wonderful happens.

Then we made one last stop in Central Park which is just opposite MAD for a little walk, a run around the water park and a good long swing on the tire swing... 'cause Elmo lives in NYC don't you know and you never know where you might see him ;)
