Modern Detour | NYC

IMG_1898Hi Folks. My apologies for the absence of content for the past few days, but I was fortunate to have Jim Bixby of 828 Design escort me on a quick and creative design inspired weekend in Manhattan. For 51 years I’ve been wanting to visit the Guggenheim and I was finally able to realize that dream to experience this exhibition building. They are currently hosting a show called “Storylines” which was right up my alley. From their collection they pulled 137813_35d1eb1d16e9d468_bnarrative driven, contemporary art telling a variety of stories by the artists. The Cooper Hewitt Museum of Design featured a great exhibit and tour on Heatherwick Studios, a London-based design firm, call Provocations. The inspiring examples showed what can be accomplished leaving behind standard thinking in building and construction. Finally, we visited the new Whitney Museum of American Art designed by Renzo Piano situated between the end of the High lederman-o05a9997-web_2340Line and the Hudson River and just down from our hotel. Very stunning experience given its relationship to context and a very NY collection of art. A provocative combination and worth a relaxing stroll.

Thanks again to Jim for providing the tour and thanks to Kelly and Matt, here at Modern Asheville Real Estate, for supporting me in taking this inspiring opportunity and continuing to grow our business. Cheers to all!
