To Give And Receive

I’ve been invited for a private viewing of the extraordinary retrospective Jasper Johns: Mind/Mirror at the Whitney Museum of American Art this coming Friday.  As a lapsed art history major, this is the type of event that brings me back to center. In preparation, I’m attending Making Sense of Jasper Johns by the Whitney online, and booked a private tour for the other half of Jasper Johns: Mind Mirror at the Philadelphia Museum of Art on Thursday. I was convinced to see both after reading this article in The New York Times. A private museum tour would be a phenomenal and memorable holiday gift.  Also, ‘Slim Aarons: Style’ is fantastic — a trove of Slim’s photographs of “attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places” and written by my dear friend Kate Betts. G. Lalo notepads, a Smythson trinket box, and Byredo hand cream are always appreciated.

  • I’m attending Making Sense of Jasper Johns too. I thought Part 1 was excellent.

  • I’ve now signed up for the Jasper Johns course as well. What a perfect selection of gift ideas!

  • The Jasper Johns exhibit at the Whitney was fantastic and if you have time to go see the Jennifer Packer exhibit upstairs, see that too. Also beautiful and thought-provoking. Thanks for the reminder about the Jasper Johns course. I just signed up for part 2.

  • Thank you for sharing the Times article. The Labryrinth of Form exhibit at the Whitney also looks interesting.
