More from the NYC Field Trip (Belated April Post)

JR's attempt at street art in Chelsea.

Matthew Benedict, Silent Still Life, 2002-2012 at Alexander Bonin Gallery, NYC

Thomas Ruff's glorious new work at David Zwirner Gallery (photograms and ma.r.s.)

The ma.r.s. photographs required 3-D glasses for viewing. Hannah and I happened to see Thomas Ruff in David Zwirner's office and were star struck the rest of the day.

Hannah sniffing Virginia Overton's installation at Mitchell-Innes & Nash Gallery

Later we learned that this fantastic building in Chelsea might be the new Whitney Museum. I will find out next time!

Installing Claes Oldenberg's Mouse Museum and Ray Gun Annex at MOMA. Oh how I wish I could have seen this! This Oldenberg classic is a big inspiration for the wunderkammer.

Individual articles from the Mouse Museum before installation (clearly this arrived from Germany).

Photographing blue dresses at the Met #1 (Ingres).

Photographing blue dresses at the Met #2.

Photographing a red tapestry at the Met in the manner of the blue dress above.
