Rafael Colon, a New York-based artist, creates artistic masterpieces on modern mediums like sneakers and skateboards. A former network engineer in the Marines, he’s now pursuing an Art History degree and his passion for art full-time.
For the first time in more than ten years, the artwork of world-renowned sculptor Dale Chihuly will be featured in a major exhibition in New York.
Returning to The New York Botanical Garden beginning in spring 2017 (official exhibition run dates to be announced), CHIHULY, presented by Bank of America, will be a new experience with monumental installations within and around the most celebrated sites in the Botanical Garden’s landscape.
The new exhibition will also feature a display of Chihuly’s drawings.
On select evenings, the installations throughout the Garden will be dramatically illuminated in a celebration of color, form, and light.
Visit the Garden’s Web site, nybg.org, for more information and to purchase tickets.
For over a century, kids – young and old alike! – have been coloring their way through childhood with the iconic Crayola crayon.
Did you know…
The first box of Crayola crayons was introduced in 1903. It sold for a nickel and included the same eight colors available today: red, blue, yellow, green, violet, orange, black and brown.
Crayola produces nearly 3 billion crayons each year, an average of 12 million wax sticks daily. That’s enough to circle the globe 6 times!
The average child in the United States will wear down about 730 crayons by his or her 10th birthday (11,464 boxes or 7 lbs of crayons) enough to cover an NBA basketball court!
According to Christian Science Monitor, parents buy enough crayons in a year to make a giant crayon 35 feet wide and 100 feet taller than the Statue of Liberty!
