  • BOS 2009 map isn’t very good. Somewhat hard to use. #

  • A blistering day in Bushwick & the art barometer reads hot & fabulous. Spotted tons of “off-the-map” treasures. #
  • Been shooting short interview videos last 2 days. Look forward to posting them. Almost end of my tour & I’m exhausted. Last stop Broadway. #
  • I was greeted at Grace Exhibition space with a Bloody Mary & a slice of brain. I think I’ll be here for a while. #
  • Upon return to Chelsea I spot young female artist selling panels of female nudes. Needless to say tons of men are crowded around her table. #
