Fun in Chelsea

One of my favorite Saturday activities is to walk over to Chelsea and go door to door, visiting all the art galleries.  The best part?  They're all free!  

Here are a few of my favorite installations that are on display now.  I highly recommend seeing them all.

Nick Cave
"Ever-After" at the Jack Shainman Gallery through Oct 8, 2011
"For Now" at the Mary Boone Gallery through Oct 22, 2011

I love this furry polka-dot thing, which reminds me of a Dr Seuss character.

Richard Serra
"Junction/Cycle" at the Gagosian Gallery through November 26, 2011

Serra

I've always loved Serra's larger-than-life steel sculptures, which make me feel like a kid lost in a surreal, dreamy canyon.  It's amazing how he can take such a cold, lifeless material and make it so warm and inviting.

It makes noise, too - a groaning, like a dying cow...
