This is definitely not Miami

The word from Santa Barbara is that Hendrik is a hit there and that discussions of working space for artists and residencies have merit not only here and in particular at the offices of LMCC (where I have been "freespacing" for the past few days), but also
anyplace where there are artists. As the discussion develops around these issues here and elsewhere, the fairs and art activities in Miami have been exploding all week, with reports of parties and art buying abound. Although cold in New York, I have been warmed by the continued perching in Santa Barbara and am glad I am getting back to work here.

I went around to a bunch of galleries yesterday with Roger and we had the pleasure of running into Lawrence Weschler, proving that the hardworking and thinking folks of New York can be found with scarves tied around their necks and their hats on.
