Once a month the Brooklyn Museum (among many other museums in New York) hosts 'First Night'. This remarkable event occurs every first Saturday. It is something to see and something to celebrate with good friends and good food and interesting art.
These are my dancin' feet:
They are not to be confused with my 'just standing there feet'. For one thing, they are on this sick lit dance floor and even if I wasn't listening to crazy drum beats with hundreds of crazy Brooklynites I'd be dancing, just. because. of. the. floor.
One of the major perks about First Night is that it's always accompanied with an outrageous dance party.
OH and it's ABSOLUTELY, TOTALLY, COMPLETELY, FREE.
Oh and it's open until way crazy late (as I think all museums should be all the time).
Oh. AND all the exhibits are open and free too.
What a recipe for fun.
Here's the one thing I
illegally unknowingly snapped from the Kiki Smith exhibit. It's a clump of thorns.
No. It's a heart! Check out that shadow.
"Life is pain. Anyone who says otherwise is selling something."
Kiki just gets it. In that 'I hate men' kind of way. High-five, sister.
FYI - Kiki Smith's Sojourn is going strong 'til Fall
If it's been a while since you've been to First Night I suggest dusting it off. This is my favorite 'just girls' picture of the evening. With all that feminism everywhere it just didn't feel "right" to document any men.
