Art Makes a Café Magicalposted by: Susan Hancock on Sep.29.11
The Gala in the Garden at the Hammer this past weekend was magical. Matt Groening who is the creator of The Simpsons was given a very funny tribute by Neil Patrick Harris and artist Lari Pittman was honored by Christopher Knight. The Courtyard Installation by Jorge Pardo made for a very cozy atmosphere and gave all of my pictures at dinner an orange glow.
Willy Wong — Waters x Connectionsposted by: Willy Wong on Sep.16.11
Staring at my wall. An every changing scrapbook of references curated and edited over the past five years, at times completely purged for new thoughts and musings. Heading out for some art openings. Unexpected moment on the video screen in the elevator. Failure is good sometimes. On the train I try to find something new in the Duke Riley. Hoping to have a piece from him one day.

A wheatpaste mashup featuring two of my favorite guilty pleasures: canned food and Colbert. Em would add popcorn.

Willy Wong — Whitman x Mondayposted by: Willy Wong on Sep.13.11
Mondays start out hazy but get hectic fast. I try to multi-task on my way to the office. Playlists are essential. Mine are 2-3 years old, but still awesome. I should start using my Spotify account. It's a beautiful morning in New York.

What Happens in Vegas...posted by: Sarah Gavlak on Sep.7.11
After a quick trip to Paris, I flew back to Palm Beach and re-packed my bags for a three week excursion to Pittsburgh, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. The amount of costume changes involved was dizzying. First, I had to pack for five days in Pittsburgh which included a day at Kennywood with my nephews, then a three day birthday party extravaganza for the fabulous Ann Tenenbaum and another week in Los Angeles...what's a girl to do? Send steamer trunks ahead? Taking my fashion cues as I always do from fashion legends and Warhol icons Jackie Kennedy and Elizabeth Taylor, I was appropriately dressed and still a little "out there" respectively for each leg of my trip.
