On Sunday, we woke up very early and made our way to the Chinati Foundation in hopes of experiencing a few of the exhibits during sunrise. And as the sun rose through the fields, I saw more and more people making the same trek, dark figures moving in formation along the gravel pathway towards the hangars, where aluminum blocks awaited us. Donald Judd’s 100 untitled works in mill aluminum is a collection of these rectangular […]

I finally made that trip to Marfa. It’s been on my bucket list for some time now and when it was announced that Solange would be performing Scales during the Chinati Weekend this year, I really couldn’t hold off on this trip any longer. So my friend, AJ and I, made that ten hour drive to West Texas and found ourselves immersed into a quick but amazing weekend of art, music, and Instagram memories. We […]

Chihuly Gardens was surprisingly one of my favorite places in Seattle. I admit that flowery glass sculptures sounded like a cheesy idea at first, but walking through the museum and seeing all the beautiful spectrum of colors and glass pieces was quite an amazing experience.  The grandeur of those glass sculptures are pretty neat to see in person.

We opted for the train to go from Vancouver to Seattle. If you have time to spare, I highly recommend business class on a train through the countryside. The views are beautiful and that pink sunset against the ocean and mountains are just amazing.

My impression when I left Vancouver was that it is a very romantic city. Maybe it was the beautiful sunsets on the beach horizon that we witnessed while experiencing our first drum circle performance by the locals, or maybe it was the scenic routes filled with sweet blooms throughout the city. If I could recommend a city for a pair of lovers, it would probably be Vancouver. We spent the last night in the city […]

The Musuem of Anthropology in Vancouver had this large room where there are shelves and shelves and cabinets full of fascinating objects and relics from different cultures for guests to explore and admire. I was really captivated by all the beautiful and scary masks on display in the glass shelves. The colors and textures and details in these works of art are so amazing.
