wild card: a tourist in NYC / by kelly heaton

Top row, left to right: a pretty wall in Chinatown; two pics through a street grate (aka where cell phones go to die); one of Sterling Ruby's ugly-beautiful-stupid-smart ashtrays at the Whitney

Bottom row, left to right: one of Keith Mayerson's great paintings, wrongfully displayed on the 3rd floor of the 2014 Whitney Biennial; Fabergé Lilies-of-the-Valley Basket at the Met; my reflection in a pastel drawing by Lucas Samaras; Masqueraders by Raimundo de Madrazo y Garreta, also at the Met.  I took many photos at the fabulous Metropolitan Museum… more later.
