There's an ever-changing display of educational chalk art on the west side of Lenox Ave between 130th and 131st streets. The art is drawn by an older gentleman and is almost always math-oriented. He usually also includes a sentence or two saying why knowing math is important.
The chalk drawings are large enough to make it difficult to photograph. If only I were six feet taller! Luckily, the Google Street View camera captured a more elaborate drawing.
Another image plucked out of the iPhoto drawer at random.
It is sad to say but I've worked at least a couple hours each day on this week "off". There was paperwork I wanted to shuffle last Friday, but that was snowed out. That necessitated a Monday morning office visit. Every day since there's been something that I've had to do. I'm about to wrap up the last bit of work and then I'm not accessing my work email for a week.
On the plus side I've managed to reduce the unread book pile and Netflix queue by three each. I also visited the Rubin Museum of Art. The Rubin is a newish museum dedicated to Himalayan art. I learned that Himalayan art is not my cup of tea. Oh, the art was great, but there was way too much going on in the paintings and tapestries for me to make much sense of it. I knew I was in trouble in the Introduction to Himalayan Art gallery when I read that some works had five deities that took on four appearances each within a single piece. To see something more to my liking tomorrow may be a gray day, while Monday is looking more colorful.
It is almost vacation time. Unlike the past couple of years, no trips to the Midwest are planned. No trips at all are planned. The next two weeks are going to be all about fabulous New York City. If it can't be reached by mass transit it's not worth visiting! There may be more activity here, there might be less.
I noticed these two Stickman pieces on my Labor Day bike ride. The technique on the top one is reminiscent of a Toynbee tile and the base of the call box has been rotated 90 degrees since Jake took this photo in August.
