Two Exhibits To See Right Now In New York

Two not-to-miss shows at the Met. Obviously, the Michelangelo drawings is one (up until February 12) These drawings are familiar to every serious contemporary artist, a wonder to everyone -- better in so many ways to his well-known sculpture. And the David Hockney show (up until February 15). Both the “divine” Mr. Buonarroti and the ever inventive Mr. Hockney have had a profound impact on current artistic trends, despite the 500 years that separate them. And if that doesn’t get you, remember that you can always visit Instagram.com/myrongilbert. Almost daily additions. It gets weirder by the day. On purpose.
