I SPY: Lost In Space

May 9, 2016

How was your Mothers Day weekend?  Our weather wasn't very cooperative, soccer got cancelled, kids found play dates, and Mama was free for a few hours to hit the Frieze Art Fair and get lost in space.  Rarely does things go off schedule in my favor!  I was secretly jumping for joy.  HA.  Don't get me wrong...I love my boys dearly, but I also LOVE some peace and adult time to not have a kid hanging off my leg!  So I was happy to hit Randall's Island alone to see all of this color.

Some really cool stuff right?  As always this art fair never fails to impress.  In case you heard there was a live Donkey on exhibit too, with a long line to wait to see him!  CRAZY.  But this is New York and farm animals are a rare sighting for these city folks.  However, I've been to plenty of farms before.  What's the point of standing in line to see an Ass?  HA.  My time was precious and there were far too many other goodies to see…REAL art!  Glad I got to go.
