Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and The Catholic Imagination

“Practically speaking, your religion is the story you tell about your life.” ~ Andrew Greeley Surprising Theme I was intrigued when I found out the theme of this year’s Fashion Exhibit at the Met. And even more shocked when I found out it had the support of the Catholic Church. In fact New York’s Cardinal even spoke at the gala ….

A Day At The Met

“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.” ~ Pablo Picasso The Met One of the draws of New York City is that their are literally a gazillion museums exhibiting a wide range of art.

Nineties Boy Bands, Tattoos, and Sisterhood

“A lot of my friends have tattoos; I realized that it’s not only just a part of pop culture, but a bit of a map on someone’s body, which says something about people.

For me a theatre experiences isn’t a theatre experience without music and dancing and basically what Broadway represents. (Les Miz, Phantom, of the old crown and Hamilton, Finding ….

Family first is and always has been my motto. Thankfully going to a Mordance show, ….

Art Amusement
