Art Serendipitous

Living in New York City never seems to bore me. There is always something interesting that you come across that catches your eye, especially in the summer. Whether it is a bum ranting about how his rear itches or a sexy model walking across the street in their, next to nothing, clothing and their immaculately glistening skin, the city manages to keep you entertained.

During the weekend of NYC's Gay Pride Festival, I was hanging out with a friend, walking around the Meatpacking District (how appropriate for pride weekend, ha). We stumbled upon the Bohen Foundation where various, rotating art and cultural exhibitions are on display from time to time. The theme of this exhibition was ICONS, presented by Mr. Brainwash, where individuals like Charlie Chaplin, The Rolling Stones, and, of course, Madonna were silkscreen printed or illustrated with old vinyl records and cds onto large canvases.

The exhibit was immediately a visual stimulation.  Although, it would have been nice to run into a picturesque male model to observe as art. Joking. Okay, only half joking.

Here are several photos I took at the exhibit located at 415 West 13th street. I, especially, love the Madge piece since it was the cover for her Celebration album as well as the wall of portraits of forward thinkers. For more information, email Eric Allouche at
