From the Whitney to Coney: art

Chroma cubes at the Whitney
The palest cubes in a scale of chromatic/tonal shifts. I love how these flatten into a painting, viewed from above with the shadows cast.

My brother and I, expecting rain Friday, planned a trip to the Whitney followed by a wander up the High Line. Naturally once we got to the city, the weather had become hot and sunny. It was a good plan anyway, as neither of us had been to the new Whitney, and we saw the Calder exhibit (two of his floor-sitting mobiles pictured below), some of the permanent collection, and selections from the Biennial. Some stunning views from the High Line followed.

More High Line and Coney Art Walls after the jump.

Saturday afternoon we rode our bikes out Ocean Parkway to Coney Island. My brother had somehow never been, after all of his trips to NYC! We had some beach and swim time, followed by a meander through the Art Walls, and brews at the Steeplechase Beer Garden, and finally a jarring and giggling ride on the Cyclone. Below are some selects from the art walls.
