Something I discovered: Elizabeth Peyton, popular pop-icon portrait painter, made a painting of the corner by my house.
I think that's cool because it's not like it's a particularly famous or interesting corner (7th Ave & 11th Street), but it's a part of what I see just about every day and for some reason she thought it was paintworthy. Maybe she's my neighbor?
Peyton has a major show opening at the New Museum next week. Finally, a legitimate reason to go back to that museum.
