MAGGIE NORRIS: The Big Egg Hunt

Announcement


For Fabergé's The Big Egg Hunt Charity Event, an innovative and engaging fundraising initiative that will see over 250 large egg sculptures—each designed by globally renowned artists, designers and creatives—Maggie Norris designed the 'Fabergé Rosebud Corset', inspired by the 'Imperial Rosebud' Egg by Peter Carl Fabergé.

These eggs will be placed throughout the five boroughs of New York City, from April 1st to 26th, benefiting both Elephant Family, an organization that helps protect the endangered Asian Elephant, and Studio in a School, a community of professional artists that has been teaching visual arts to hundreds of thousands of New York City children in under-served public schools, daycare centers, and community-based organizations for 36 years.

In addition to the more than 260 egg sculptures that have been created by prominent artists, The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt has commissioned public school students participating in Studio in a School programs to design 24 additional eggs.

POP, ROCK & DANCE: Ron Galella photo exhibit

reporter: Miguel Dominguez


On December 12, 2013, the Staley-Wise Gallery had a photo exhibit of top paparazzo Ron Galella, the very same one that Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis had to put a restraining order on.


Galella is widely known for his obsessive treatment of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and the subsequent legal battles associated with it. The New York Post called this "the most co-dependent celeb-pap[arazzi] relationship ever." The famous 1972 free-speech trial Galella v. Onassis resulted in a restraining order to keep Galella 50 feet away from Mrs. Onassis and 75 feet away from her children.

COHESION EN LO DIVERSO: Elisabeth Ollé Curiel - Art Exibit and Lecture

reporter: Miguel Dominguez



I could find no biography to be able to inform readers about Elisabeth Ollé Curiel, a wonderful artist from Barcelona.

Her web site doesn't have any available. That's the reason it took me such a long time to publish this article which occurred on June 26, 2013. Still, Her art is so striking, in such a Spanish sort of way, it's a shame not to expose it.
