Four Flowers



“Four Flowers,” Marisol D’Andrea, March 2017, acrylics on canvas, 20″ x 36″


The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something –Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country, 2007

Farewell to Honest Ed’s

Honest Ed’s is closing its doors for good, leaving an emotional gap, and with many wondering what the future holds for the landmark.

Before it’s demolished, a series of festivals have been created. Here I would like to share with you the one I attended–the festival’s signature exhibition, aMAZEment: Immersive Art Maze featuring multi-disciplinary art exhibitions, interactive artworks, and special performances – including 2FIK (who examines cultural legacies as well as identity constructs), Clara Venice (pop musician who plays the Theremin), the fabulous Confidential Musical Theatre, and many more.

I Honestly enjoyed the spectacle of performances and art installations.

Here are a few exhibits the festival offered! It will continue until Sunday. Glad to be part of this historical event. If you decide to attend be prepared to walk for a few hours and wear comfortable shoes; it’s worth the walk!  After that, THAT’S IT! for Honest Ed’s.
