Herb Ritts exhibit at MFA closes Nov. 8

MFA Boston presents Herb Ritts WORKLast March I wrote about a small Herb Ritts exhibit opening at the MFA. The exhibit which spans two rooms includes some of the photos included in the MFA’s 1996 retrospective “Herb Ritts:  WORK”, which remains one of the museum’s most popular exhibitions to date.  If you’ve not had a chance to stop by and see the exhibit at the MFA Boston, I’d suggest you hurry since it closes on Sunday, November 8, 2015.


Justin and Nick on Instagram

Instagram, justinick_pghConfessions of a Boy Toy recently shared a blog post recently entitled,  Meet Justin & Nick: Instagram’s Sexiest Gay Couple.  For about six months I have been one of the more than 170,000 people who follow their joint account on Instagram and without fail each of their posts bring a smile to my face.

As you can probably tell from the photo above and a few more below, these guys are easier on the eyes than sun glasses on a bright summer day.  If you are not already, you too can follow this handsome Pittsburgh couple via Instagram at @justnick_pgh.

Ptown gallery walk

While tens of thousands have descended upon Provincetown for Independence Week parties and celebrations, a weekly tradition worth checking out (if only to take a break from all the revelries) is the Ptown Friday Gallery Walk.

While many think of the East End when they think of Provincetown’s art galleries, don’t overlook West End galleries like the AMP Gallery at 148 Commercial St. where Keith Krisa’s exhibit opened and will run through Wednesday, July 8th.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  Ptown offers a little bit of something for everyone.  While visiting try something you may not normally do.  You might be surprised by how much you enjoy perusing Provincetown’s art galleries.

Gordon Parks Back to Fort Scott at MFA Boston

Museum of Fine Arts bostonThe Museum of Fine Arts Boston has an exhibit that I plan on visiting this month and I hope you will too.  Gordon Parks (1912–2006), one of the most celebrated African American artists of his time, is being featured in the MFA exhibit, Gordon Parks Back to Fort Scott in Robert and Jane Burke Gallery (Gallery 335).

This exhibition represents a rarely seen view of everyday lives of African American citizens, years before the Civil Rights movement began in earnest. His photographs focus on the realities of life under segregation, but also relating to Parks’s own fascinating life story.

About Gordon Parks:  In 1948, Gordon Parks became the first African American photographer to be hired full time by LIFE magazine. One of the rare African American photojournalists in the field, Parks was frequently given magazine assignments involving social issues that his white colleagues were not asked to cover.

Gordon Parks Back to Fort Scott is on exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston through September 13, 2015.

Herb Ritts (1952-2002) was a leading American fashion photographer in the 1980s and 1990s, known for his bold, sensual images of supermodels and celebrities.  The MFA exhibit which opens later this week revisits the artist, whose 1996 retrospective “Herb Ritts:  WORK” remains one of the museum’s most popular exhibitions to date.
