Stopped by the Powerhouse Arena the other day and saw the EXHIBITION: SANDY: Devastation, Document, Drivea vast visual document of Superstorm Sandy created by photographers of all backgrounds–from career photojournalists to judiciously situated cell phone owners and ardent Instagrammers. (it’s ending today! I’m glad I caught it before it ends.)

And all these photos on the wall are up for grab for a suggested donation of $5 per photo.

I was happy to see lots of photos were taken…

I looked through each one, also hoping to rebuild, renew, renovate… and got one photograph and made a donation. What a great exhibition this was. Hope many people have seen it…

Happy Friday and Happy weekend, everyone! xo Hijiri

My Ideal Bookshelf

These photos were taken last December when the Powerhouse Arena was having an exhibition for the book called “My Ideal Bookshelf“. After posting some photos last week from PA, I remembered that I hadn’t posted these here… It was really interesting and awesome to look at all the art from the book.

Original paintings by artist Jane Mount showcase the selections, with colorful, hand-lettered book spines and occasional objets d’art from the contributors’ personal bookshelves. IMG_5198

It’s a perfect coffee table book, too, if you are looking for one.

One more find from Powerhouse Arena… I’m not sure if the wall is still in progress, but it’s fun to see graffiti art on the wall.
