The Next Andy Warhol : Armory Show

Anyone pass by Times Square recently and noticed any new additions? I'm not talking about the tourists or latest brand name store that opened up. Or the guy begging for money for weed.

I'm referring to the flock of sheep that seems to have lost their Bo-Peep.

As part of the Armory Show at Piers 92 and 94, Kyu Seok Oh created a sculpture of a flock of sheep as part of the show at the Park Armory

The Art Show brings thousands of pieces ranging from 19th-20th century to more modern art, including a sculpture of meat made out of wood.

So bring your sketchbook, camera, or journal and be inspired to create! Or if you prefer to stay in the more central areas, check out sculptures at Duffy Square, between 46th and 47th Street, and, of course Times Square. And while you are allowed to take pictures, pet, and hug the sheep - please do not practice your kickboxing moves on the sheep.

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.
