Can you imagine walking through a room that is dramatically lit and there’s rain falling from the ceiling? You would expect to get soaking wet, right?
Think again… right now at The Barbican, London there’s an art installation by Random International at The Curve Gallery in which you control the elements.

The Met Ball took place last night.

On Thursday February 16th our Brooklyn store is holding an event that will include an art exhibition and raffle with local artist Jennifer Contini! Jennifer does beautiful heart installation paintings, incorporating a multitude of mediums, so it felt appropriate to share some of her work today with the approach of Valentine’s day! At the event, customers who spend $150 or more will be entered in a raffle to win a piece of her lovely work!
Jennifer’s website speaks of her love affair with New York, about which she says “I live and work in a place that beats to the same drum as I do. The fast urban pace of Manhattan is home, and my vibrant downtown neighborhood defines and inspires my work. This is the space where my artistic vein finds higher meaning.” Her pieces have a distinct urban, street art feel, and are like artistic valentines to the city she loves.
See more on her website. We’ll have more details on the event next week!
