The Clown Olympics hosted by The Brick Theatre in Williamsburg last night. Events ranged from ‘Solo Trips and Falls’ to ‘Kiddie Pool Synchronized Swimming’.
spent the weekend down in DC and visited the National Gallery which is one of my favorite museums. it’s chuck full of masterpieces; the main rooms are all lit with natural light; and there’s a beautiful austerity to how the art is displayed. this is a photo that i took of Randolph Rogers’s marble statue entitled “Nydia, the Blind Girl of Pompeii”. carved in 1860. photography of a museum’s general collection is usually permitted. it’s the travelling shows that prohibit photographs.
St. Giglio Festival in Williamsburg began last Sat. with the ceremonial procession of a seven-story high statue topped with St. Giglio himself. It’s a stone’s throw away from the Lorimer St. on the “L” train.
