The High Line’s art scene is always vibrant, but rarely deep fried. Until now. Artist Jamal Cyrus presents “Texas Fried Tenor” on Saturday November 16, at 2pm at the 14th Street Passage. It is a performance art piece that grapples with racial issues in American history, blending an instrument of the blues & jazz age with the southern stereotype of cuisine defined by the fryer. It promises to be an interesting and provocative show that is sure to surprise and intrigue city tots!

We are super psyched to have partnered with Uprise Art to present artist Rebeca Raney at Babesta! We took down our awesome pink unicorn from our arched wall, and the folks from Uprise proceeded to hang a series of Raney’s black and white paintings on wooden plaques against our grey wall. Her style is simple and her subjects are mouthless (much like our fave feline, Hello Kitty) yet seem to inhabit a happy world of flowers, llamas and flowing hair.
Raney, born in 1980 in Miami, now creates her artwork from her Brooklyn studio. She recently collaborated with Madewell for a capsule collection, and had a solo show at the prestigious Art Basel Miami. We’re stoked to have her in the house at Babesta! Check out her work in the store at 56 Warren Street, NYC or online at www.babesta.com/rebecca_raney.
Rebeca Raney’s artwork at Babesta paired with hand knit dolls by Two Little Stix.
The school year tends to sneak up on you, huh? Well, for our readers in the San Francisco area, we have some super cool news that sprung up just as suddenly…
San Francisco’s Store1AMSF is playing host to a super rad pop up shop featuring the work of our friends over at New Skool. We love their hip-hop/graffiti inspired fresh take on kids’ apparel (you can shop the brand by clicking on their name above) and the art is off the hook, so of course we were really excited to hear about their pop up. Up until Sept. 21st, be sure not to miss out!
If you can’t live it, you can at least have it for your wall. Love this! (Super cool in a beach house nursery!!) (photo from www.maisongray.com, (c) gray malin).
