Constantly re-falling in love with this city…
This past weekend was so so good. One of those where you smile while reflecting on each memorable bit before turning off the light on Sunday night. My friends and I had a list of activities on our to-do list leading into the weekend, one being a visit to the New Museum on the Lower East Side to check out the Pipilotti Rist exhibition. To be honest, I did not know anything about the exhibition before checking it out.. We had seen photos all over Instagram of people in an amazing light display, so obviously, we had to go get a photo for ourselves. We are a perfect example of how powerful social media can be to a brand.
I think I can speak for my friends and myself when I say that we were a bit taken aback when we entered the first floor of the three-story exhibition. There were multimedia projects, hanging sheets and a large projected film. I don’t know what we were expecting, but it wasn’t that. I ended up loving how interactive each floor was – lots of cool opportunities to interact with each piece (and a great photo opportunity or two hehe).
Our favorite floor ended up being the very floor we made the trip to the museum for. The hanging lights were mesmerizing as they slowly changed colors. If only I could hang those lights from my bedroom ceiling!
Now having read about Pipilotti Rist and her work, I would love to go back to the museum for a fresh experience. I definitely recommend going, just be sure to read up on the exhibition first and have plenty of time to lounge and watch each multiple piece numerous times!
We rounded out our afternoon with Sweets by CHLOE. Its the cutest little place to pop into for a dessert and coffee. Also, the branding is perfection (see the napkin below). My lovely model enjoyed a lemon raspberry cupcake, and I stuffed my face with a chocolate chip cookie. I definitely recommend trying the cookie – it’s not quite as good as Levian, but it is a close second.
