My very own theme park

by Paul Edmunds

Went to the Museum of Art and Design on Columbus Circle where I saw a fantastic piece by Tim Hawkinson, and another by Alastair Mackie. Downstairs was an exhibition of bespoke handmade bicycles, including some beautiful machines by the inimitable Jeff Jones. Later I strolled up to the the New York Historical Society to pick up a button badge for the Dark Star Orchestra concert on Saturday night. Walked through Chelsea on my way back home and stopped in at a whole bunch of galleries. Made it home in time to listen to an interview with Joey Ramone on KEXP on the occasion of his would-be birthday. Went out to dinner at a vegan restaurant with a gallerist.

Did anyone say 'focus group'?
