For those inclined to spend their leisure away from the insidious allure of NYC’s night scene, there are plenty of culture-friendly alternatives in the art world. NYC being a veritable Mecca for artistry (in all forms), there is never shortage of brilliance on display. Whether it’s through paint, film, or photo, there is a plethora of skill layered within every medium.
Art appreciation is double-edged sword of sorts: fleeting in its exposure, though infinitely more desirable because of it. Don’t let these exhibits pass you by, for their presence is tantalizingly evanescent!
Although this is not the photo they chose for her to grace the 2011 cover of Vogue this month, having looked through many, this was one of my favorites. Also, you still get the creepy Black Swan vibe from even this 2002 photo taken of her. It seems like everywhere I go I see Ms. Portman, even in readings. I picked up a copy of the Backstage a few days ago to find Natalie alongside a few other of my favorite actresses explaining their practices and habits while at work. S"he is simply amazing." "I imagine her to be a sheer joy to be around." But, this month's Vogue was not entirely about Ms. Portman and her amazing ability to make even me identify with my own inner "black swan".
