home is where the art is.
Confession: Although we live in New York City, we’ve only visited about a fraction of the city’s galleries and museums. This seems strange and embarrassing, particularly if comparing how we fill our days to capacity with art exhibits when in a foreign city.Call it a stay-cation or a holi-stay, but either way we’ve been inspired to check out what our city has to offer- thanks to an awesome new website. Dubbed Creative Everyone, think of the site as “a go-to guide to all the most interesting creative-oriented events guide,” including features that allow you to bookmark events you plan on going to, as well as check out which your friends have marked. Also, we admit, it’s a great tool when traveling. Since the site is new, your city may not be included yet… but this probably won’t be the case for long!Check out the site hereAnd here are a few of our favorite finds:Goodbye London“Take part in a photographic adventure that asks you to imagine a London on the brink of apocalypse.
