Bushwick, Brooklyn #NewHood

We just moved in to a new neighborhood in Brooklyn – and so far really loving it. Everyone says Bushwick is “up & coming” which, (for those of you who don’t know) means it used to be very ghetto, has gotten much nicer, but still has a long way to go. I mildly agree but love the character and charm of this very diverse and artsy neighborhood.  The streets are spewed with massive pieces of graffiti art on buildings and garages. As I’m obsessed with taking photos of everything, The Bushwick Collective & other nearby pieces will occasionally make an appearance here or on my Snapchat @ashleybyrdy

Some of my favorite pieces around the neighborhood…

Jeff Koons: A Retrospective

Jeff Koons – A Retrospective at The Whitney Museum.

A “retrospective” – looking back on or dealing with past events or situations.

Fitting, really. Art in various forms has always been a passion of mine – since I see art in so many aspects of everyday life. Constantly wondering how a person created an object, idea or work. Where did it come from? How could one create something so major? So massive – whether in size or in thought…

Photos of my favorites!
