Art for the Plush Lovers

Tired of visiting the same old gallery opening? Want to feel fancy while wearing an Usakumya bag? On Friday March 18th, MyPlasticHeart is having an exhibit opening for Soft*: A Plush Art Show.

But the question is why an art exhibition on plushies?

Making a plush is like giving life to something that will keep you company and won't judge when you cry during the end of The Little Princess. It shares your mess and covers for you when a scoop of ice cream falls off the cone. It protects you from the monsters in the closet with its mental super powers.

All in all, a plush is the best friend you will ever have, and what better way to commemorate than in an art exhibition.

Soft* features pieces by Steff BombDanita, Kelly DenatoHeidi KenneyAmanda Louise Spayd, and Mariangela Tan. So cuddle and critic the immense soft power of the plush animal with the artists and art lovers alike.

2012 Holiday Window Displays in NYC

Holidays are often the best times for tourists with chance to see New York City during their vacation.  For New Yorkers its also a time to brood and avoid all the any plans that involve remotely going near main points of traffic.

However there is one that thing that both tend to enjoy is the holiday window displays.  People line up and wait just to see what will light up and what new themes stores have come up with.

Like the ice rinks that open, the special markets that open during this time of year, stores get into the season by decorating their windows with images that inspire anyone to take their camera out. I personally recommend starting midtown and walking up. Depending on the time of day you can visit them all in one day - be prepared to brave crowds and have your walking shoes on.

See Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson for $50

Ever imagined what any of our founding fathers would be if they were a twenty-something, emo rock star? From the mind of Michael Friedman, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is a musical rendition about just that. Dealing with populism, the Indian Removal act, and of course making time for his wife Rachel, Andrew Jackson has complicated life story that can only be illustrated through song and dance.

The producers of the show would like to show their political support with their "Jackson for a Grant" initiative which offers $50 tickets to the show through November 24th.

Just use the code BBJVOTE when you purchase your tickets on or purchase tickets at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater box office (242 West 45th Street, Manhattan); or by call (212) 947-8844.
