“There’s nothing to do,” said Sue, “I’m bored to the core, is there nothing to explore?” Polly the scoop was amazed. “My dear, there’s so much to see and explore, I’m heading to see the Great Upheaval, the Intrepid Museum, Indian Tipis, and then there’s the tale of two Climates. Only in New York my dear, Only in New York. Here’s the scoop!!!
When Vasily Kandinsky and Franz Marc formed the group De Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) in late 1911, the artists predicted a watershed in the arts, a Great Upheaval that would radically challenge traditional artistic production. The Great Upheaval at the Guggenheim illuminates the dynamism of this fertile period, and unites and Guggenheim Foundation’s remarkable collections in New York and Venice in order to capture the spirit and dynamism of the European avant-garde. Works include 48 artists including Marc Chagall, Marcel Duchamp, Kandinsky, Fernand Leger, Pablo Picasso, among other greats of the era. Through June 1, 2011.
Women have their day of recognition at “American Women on the Home Front,” a new exhibition that shows women’s roles in wartime efforts during WWI and WWII at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, located at Pier 86, 46th Street and 12th Avenue opening Tuesday, March 1st. The depiction of women in the posters shows the changing roles of women between the two wars, from modest participation in WWI to active service in WWII. The exhibit is part of a month of special programs and events at the Intrepid that salutes women in honor of Women’s History Month. Through March 31st .

Winter in New York can be tough on anyone as well as their garden---whether it be a community garden, backyard plot, or the New York Botanical Garden. But add a blanket of snow and, oh, how lovely it all becomes when stark whiteness highlights the woodland architecture of the Native Forest. To banish cabin fever take a trip of the tropics by train and visit the refurbished Enid A. Haupt Conservatory for a dose of sultry warmth of the tropics. Caribbean Garden thrills with verdant, lush foliage. Escape from the snow is only 20 minutes from Grand Central on Metro-North.
Ta Ta darlings!!! I can’t take much more of the snow so I’m heading to the Caribbean Garden. Fan mail is always appreciated: View my Blogs: and click on the link in the right hand column to fashion, poetry and beauty topics including
