Miami, FL

Fun in the sun for Miami Art Basel! Public art, gourmet dishes and swaggy lobbies lead way to a wonderful experience in the beginning of December.

St. Louis, MO

From viewing the largest prehistoric earthen construction in the Americas north of Mexico to The Arch to Southern cuisine and the headquarters of Anheuser-Busch I was very busy and very happy on my trip to St. Louis, MO!

Indianapolis, IN

During the 100th running of the Indy 500 I visited Indianapolis, IN. After enjoying the race I enjoyed food and drink at two of Indy’s finest establishments. The next day I explored downtown even further, visiting the Civil War Museum and climbing to the top of the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument to view all of downtown in the distance. A short but sweet trip, Indy was a fun time!

California: Street and Public Art Edition

 

During my trip across the country to California in 2012 I was inspired by the art I found walking around in Hollywood, downtown Los Angeles, and Santa Monica.  The street and public art was full of diversity in its range of subject matter, format, and placement in space. The works included sculpture, advertising campaigns, murals, graffiti and paintings, all hidden gems of art.

Enjoy some of the highlights of my trip!

 

 

The vibrant colors, complex patterns, and interesting compositions could be found on main and side streets.

 

 
Live on the edge, with the arts of course!

Santa Fe, New Mexico

On my trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico I took lots of photos of the places and pieces that brought my trip to life. Santa Fe is full of inspiration, peace and color. Enjoy!

Cleveland, Ohio

My last trip of 2014 was to Cleveland, Ohio. Full of Midwestern sensibility and two amazing art institutions, I had a good trip.

Day 1: My first picture in Cleveland happened on the plane!

IMG_20141228_175940

An aerial view of Cleveland, Ohio showed me lots of land and the manufacturing history of the city, which you can spot in the background with the train tracks.

Greeted at the airport with a huge “Cleveland” welcome!

The incredible sunsets across Lake Eerie were breathtaking!

Day 2: Food

West Side Market
