MAD - Museum of Art and Design

Now that I moved to New York for college, I have the chance to go to several museums I didn't have time to go to when visiting the city. One of this museums is MAD. 

Located at the Columbus Circle in Manhattan, The Museum of Art and Design has a wonderful permanent exhibition of Jewelry (which I will write about soon) as well as temporary exhibitions related to design. Besides those two, the architecture of the building is already worth the visit and on the last floor there is usually an artist who is invited to work during the day at the museum's "studio". Yes, real artists you can talk to, while you get to know about their work and also see them working as if they were in their own studios!
The tickets are pricy but when you are under eighteen you don't pay. Also, there is a "pay as you wish"  day every week.

This is the temporary exhibition called "Against the Grain" Wood in contemporary art, craft and design.

 these wood shoes are awesome!

Paulista Avenue and a glimpse of life.

In the past week, I received an invitation from a friend to photograph Paulista Avenue as we walked from one side to the other and wrote, drew and talked on the way. It took two hours and a lot of inspiration to walk around and photograph one of Sao Paulo's main street's movement, live, buildings and people. I have to repeat that, as though I am not a good photographer, I do have a lot of fun editing, cropping and over saturating the color of the pictures. I hope I can show you a little of Sao Paulo's movement, live, color and editing photo experiences in this post.

By the way, Paulista is not only an important business avenue in Sao Paulo but also the place where MASP (Art Museum of Sao Paulo) is located, as well an a lot of street art, exhibitions, Reserva Cultural cinema and the place where most of social manifestations happen. Is a place worth walking through if you are a local and a place worth visiting if you come to Sao Paulo. :]
