New York – Kara E. Walker’s marvelous sugar baby

I guess I will have to rave about Kara Walker’s works at the Domino Sugar factory in Brooklyn – everyone else has. And justifiably so!

It’s very impressive, a pleasure to experience and, perhaps most importantly, a huge event drawing constant crowds of all sorts of people. I always wish art events would draw the sort of crowds that a baseball game does. Kara has hit a home run with ‘a Subtlety’.

Her Majesty!

Watching the crowd was 1/2 the fun!

  1. Two amazing exhibitions – thanks Donald! I was in Manhattan recently and there was nothing there like these. It looks like Brooklyn is far more interesting!

      There is always something on somewhere! I’m going to post about two fab Chelsea shows in the next day or so.
