READING ROOM: Mariana Castillo Deball, Ixiptla (Bom Dia Boa Tarde Boa Noite, 2014) From Bom Dia: Originally a Nahua word, ixiptla has been understood as image, delegate, character, and representative. Ixiptla could be a container, but also could be the actualization of power infused into an object or person.

This golden road on Lake Iseo in Italy leads from the mainland to…the private villa of an arms manufacturer…😶 . While Christo claims he self-funded the artistic production of the project, the Beretta family, who manufacture small armaments on a huge, international scale, gave some logistical assistance, and donated the use of their private island of San Paolo.

Looking for a bite to eat in SoHo? Here is a neighborhood gem. Each Wednesday we will post a Drawing Center food fav. The Frog’s Crown is a small cafe located on the southwest corner of Spring Street and Sullivan. Its extensive menu of sweet and savory baked goods draws from mostly Mediterranean and Latin American traditions, and includes pies, quiches, baklava and empanadas. Lunch wise, we recommend the Tortilla Espanola, the Latin Samosas, and the Moussaka (a greek casserole). When it comes to...

wnycradiolab: carlzimmer: A human female skull from Peru with cranial binding.  Details from Bone Clones: Dated over 2,000 years old, this skull is an extreme example of binding and elongation. Cranial binding is the shaping of the skull when a child is very young, usually an infant. This wrapping is often done with rope or cloth by itself or against a wooden board. This results in the misshaping, flattening (see our cradle-board skull, BC-222) or, in this case, elongation. This wrapping or bi...
