As the Sotheby’s Warhol auction is today, we are all about Andy! Although we don’t have the millions needed for his series 6 self portraits (that is 25,0000,000-35,000,000), we do feel lucky to be surrounded by his pop art phenoms articulated in everyday objects and fun toys for kids. The current fave: our artful limited edition “Banana” Bugaboo Cameleon stroller now sitting in a cool lit circle in the front of Babesta Cribz, our new go-to spot for the fly-est of wheels.
In vogue this summer: Origami! Cooper Union, the site of the first origami exhibit in the U.S. 55 years ago, is featuring Surface to Structure: Folded Forms, an exhibition of 120 works of art by 80 origami artists, curated by Uyen Nguyen. We’re excited.
Here’s one to whet the appetite! Running June 19-July 4. Nguyen is currently raising funds on Indiegogo to cover shipping and exhibition expenses for this free presentation.
We are stoked to be tapped to tell about our fave sets of wheels for Mommy Nearest! We dished about all the best strollers for a city mom, including strollers by Bugaboo, Uppa Baby, Baby Zen and City Mini to name a few! Shop strollers at Babesta!
Here’s a great weekend pick! Download the app and hit the city – all five boroughs to find the artist decorated eggs ‘hidden’ all over. Just check in to “find” them – there are 275 giant eggs out there! It’s the first year this event has been held in New York – let’s show ‘em how it’s done. The egg-stravaganza sponsored by uber egg purveyor Fabrege features eggs by the likes of Ralph Lauren, Zaha Hadid and Julian Schnabel. When it’s all said & done the eggs will be auctioned off at Sotheby’s, with proceeds going to Elephant Family and Studio in a School. Happy hunting!
