The City of Lights has been given a gigantic
butt plug Christmas Tree by contemporary American artist, Paul McCarthy. Erected outside Place Vendôme, it is the centerpiece of the International Contemporary Art Fair.
I suppose Paris should consider themselves fortunate. Check out McCarthy’s installation in Hong Kong here.
This year’s Orthodox Calendar is decidedly more provocative. How do I know this? The calendar that features barely clad men with chiseled bodies arrived at my house while I was away on business.
OC maintains that their unconventional and bold images are used to counteract the negative influences of most of the Orthodox Church leadership and challenge notions of sexuality. You can learn more about this group and purchase the 2015 calendar here.
Much thanks for the 2015 O.C. calendar!

SANTANDER BANK HOSTS “PAINT-BY-GOYA” EVENT IN COPLEY SQUARE
Oct. 18th and Oct 19th from 11am – 3pm in Copley Square
Attention art lovers. James Weinberg, a local artist, has been commissioned to replicate Goya’s painting “The Parasol” on a gigantic 8′ x 12′ canvas and you are invited to help contribute to this signature piece by following a numerical color key and adding corresponding colors to this piece of community art.
The community “Paint-By-Goya” mural is inspired by the 170 paintings, prints, and drawings of Goya’s work that are included in the exhibition “Goya: Order and Disorder” on view at the MFA now through January 19, 2015.
Each Friday morning I post a riddle to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain.
If you are stumped, feel free to get help – share it with a friend or colleague to see if you can figure it out together.
I’ll confirm answers later in the day so don’t worry if you don’t see your comment posted right away. I want to give everyone a chance.
This week’s riddle:
A big Indian and a little Indian are walking down the street.
The little Indian is the son of the big Indian but the big Indian is not the father of the little Indian. How is this possible?
Like riddles? Check out past week’s brain teasers.
Boston Esplanade, October 2014
One of my favorite poems is by Robert Frost. Each autumn I post his poem, Nothing gold can stay. It is obvious that Frost was inspired by the fall foliage in New England when he wrote this poem back in 1923. I hope you enjoy the poem as much as I do.
Nature’s first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
Heads up if you are new to the city or perhaps have not attended the annual Toys for Joys party that collects presents for underprivileged children. The annual tradition is moving to a new location in Bay Village / Theater District at Space 57 at The Revere Hotel Boston Common. Save the date, Saturday, December 6th. I’ll be sure to let you know when the 2014 registration opens in a few weeks time.
