I Heart NY

I Heart NY

We finally made it to see “A Subtlety,” Kara Walker’s installation inside the old Domino Sugar Factory.

The work itself was amazing.

And, as luck would have it, the artist was there.  She could not have been more gracious, answering question after question regarding this thought provoking piece.

I don’t know this for sure, but it appeared as though she was there to discuss the work with Mayor De Blasio and his family.  Our kids were pretty excited to see the Mayor and noted how tall he was.  We think he may be the tallest mayor of NY, but I have not spent the 30 seconds it would take to confirm this fact. We also guessed that former Mayor Bloomberg was the shortest.  Sara Rose added that Taft was the fattest.  We had to remind her that Taft was president not mayor, but nice attempt at random trivia for a six year old.

Oh, and did I mention Susan Sarandon was there as well? And yes, she’s still gorgeous.

Three things to say:

1. We love a good factory

2. Why does all the cool stuff happen when we are NOT visiting

3. I hope you are keeping a book of all the awesome comments that come out of Miss Sara Rose’s mouth!
