September = the Best time ever in New York City. The weather is still extra warm, friends are back from holidays and have so much news to share, but more specifically – the Art Season takes an awesome acceleration with gallery openings, open studios, performances at Guggenheim gorgeous parties. It would be impossible to describe all interesting art I have seen since 15 days, but here are my curated works of art.

Courage in my pocket on a rainy and windy afternoon I took direction to Museum Mile in Upper East Side. And since Guggenheim had a huge line because of an apparent interest to Agnes Martin exhibition, I went for plan B – Cooper Hewitt design museum. Housed in a magnificent mansion of beginning of 20th century, which had belonged to a magnate Andrew Carnegie, the museum is a real jewelry proposing diverse programming and interaction with the visitor.
