It’s the weekend and you can’t be more excited than we are (trust us). We work hard, so it’s only fitting we play hard. By play hard we mean taking in a little ballet at the Brooklyn Museum. The First Saturday’s event at the Brooklyn Museum takes place every first Saturday of the month, allowing the public to enjoy great programs at no cost. This Saturday at the Brooklyn Museum, The Brooklyn Ballet will be putting on a show at 6PM highlighting pieces from their Spring calendar with influences from Stravinsky, Isadora Duncan, and hip-hop. Let’s hope we can all make it down there! Happy Weekend.
Our LOVE LOVE Spring/Summer 2012 campaign is finally here!
Vigoss took a cue from love for spring/summer 2012. With all that is going on in the world, we had to ask, “Where has love been hiding?” We suspect it was buried by the grey winter months, but we can delight that spring ushers love in anew. Love is the one true art that man has yet to master, so we created a pictorial ode to love, replicating famous works of art (egon schiele, duval eugene emmanuel amaury, rene magritte, jean-auguste-dominique ingres, gustave klimpt, jacque louise david, andrew wyeth, james whistler, lord frederic leighton, and francisco goya) to hopefully illustrate the complexity of love’s unyielding, hopeless, innocent, fervent and vulnerable temperament.
Join us and love love.
Happy Birthday Jean-Michel Basquiat. It’s no surprise that Jean-Michel Basquiat was the wunderkid of the 80′s along side heavyweights like Andy Warhol, Keith Herring and Julian Schnabel. Basquiat’s works blurred the lines of art with his graffiti and historical references. Sadly a victim to drug use, he succumbed to it and passed away from an overdose on August 12, 1988. Today we remember him for challenging our perceptions and the concept of ”art”.
