You would, too, if you experienced what I did today…the marvellous Jean-Michel Basquiat exhibit at the AGO!

My beautiful friend, Krista invited me as her guest to the exhibit while it is still in Toronto, and I got to experience it on my birthday! Being an 80s Queen, you know that Basquiat’s experience and story tugs hard at my heart strings.

And if you check out my About page, you will see that I am also a lover of New York City…and I got to take in, first hand, some of the amazing, rich, and diverse culture it has produced through the minds eye of Basquait. What a great experience…especially for a gal who’s been up to her elbows in dirty diapers for the past two years ;).

That being said, I did take my little Princess along (you might be able to spot the silhouette of her stroller in the above pic). She also slept through the entire visit to the AGO, but I made sure to park her right in front of each painting as I was studying it. It’s all about energy, right!

It is a mind blowing exhibit

I highly recommend you check it out and get a taste for some intense NYC contemporary art history!
