the new building of museum of art & design on 59th street is worth a visit only for the architecture & the fab views from the top floor resto! but besides that u can see there (till end october this year) one of the most amazing shows we visited recently. dead or alive, a group show of cca 30 international artists transform organic materials and objects that were once produced by or part of living organisms-insects, feathers, bones, silkworm cocoons, plant materials, and hair-to create intricately crafted and designed installations and sculptures.
