Wintry scenes of my immediate neighbourhood – my closest subway stop and the imposing Brooklyn Museum, literally two short blocks from my apartment. Eastern Parkway is the main thoroughfare that winds past the museum, the Botanical Gardens next door and the lovely Prospect Park.
Two Australians feature prominently in the museum’s current exhibitions. A willowy Nicole Kidman is featured on the poster hanging outside the museum to promote the retrospective of Annie Liebovitz’s photography. Celebrity portraiture doesn’t especially float my boat, but I was just amazed by the sculptures of (Australian-born) Ron Mueck in another exhibition – see this page from the Museum’s website for some examples.
