New York’s smallest museum is housed in an elevator shaft

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in Cool Travel on Thursday 12 December 2013

New York City is home to a 60-square-foot museum that’s simply called Museum. Housed in a refurbished elevator shaft in Chinatown, this space was founded to celebrate ‘the beauty of everyday objects and the stories behind them.’ These ‘everyday objects’ include everything from the shoe thrown at George W. Bush in 2008 (remember that?), with other rotating pieces such as a collection of tip jars, photos of food that have been rejected from a menu in Cambodia, and different potato chip bags from around the world.

Banksy rejected by New York Times, fights back with scathing street art piece

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Art on Wednesday 30 October 2013

Banksy’s latest installation smells of resentment. He wrote an article for the New York Times about the new ‘One World Trade Center’ project being ugly. Actually, he called it “vanilla” and “something from Canada”. The article was supposed to be another installment in his daily ‘Better Out Than In’ graffiti series. But predictably, his article was rejected. And like a sulking kid, he went ahead and made a big stink about it with this mural instead. Go Banksy. His work never ceases to make me smile.

Banksy announces a month long takeover of the walls of New York

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Art on Wednesday 2 October 2013

That mysterious dark lord of the street art world, Banksy, has struck again, in his typically cryptic, enigmatic way. He’s been expertly fueling the flames of innuendo via his website of late, posting new work in LA and New York and alluding to a possible uninvited (but much appreciated) takeover of the walls of Manhattan with the accompanying statement: ‘Better Out Than In. An artists residency on the streets of New York.’ Ah huh.

Paintings depict scenes of extraordinary New Yorkers doing ordinary things

Darwin Cosico Contributor

By Darwin Cosico in New Art on Tuesday 10 September 2013

New York is known for many things and one of them is a place where you’re most likely to see a celebrity doing ordinary things. It’s a known fact that Woody Allen can always be spotted at his weekly clarinet set at Café Carlyle – a tiny supper club inside the Carlyle Hotel on Madison Avenue. So it’s not surprising that Tom Sanford’s latest work caught my attention.
