Do You Know The Way To Sesame Street?…

Sunny Day
Sweepin’ the clouds away…

Sunday, I made it to Sesame Street which is temporarily located on the rooftop of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on 5th Avenue in New York City.

The air was sweet, but stinking hot and the novelty and delight of Big Bird in sky blue on a swing suspended from a Calderesque structure put a smile on my face causing me to forget about the oppressive heat.

As Long As The Sun Lasts by 40 year-old American artist, Alex da Corte, is the embodiment of youthful curiosity.

Big Bird in Blue is a nod to the artists’ youth spend in Venezuela where the iconic bird was known as Gariboldo and was cast as blue rather than his well known yellow persona.

Wandering through the impressive MET we stumbled upon a new  Medici and Alice Neel exhibit along with some stunning Faberge eggs.

Add some levity to your day and head to the rooftop for a very sunny day experience.

As Long As The Sun Lasts at The Met’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden 1000 Fifth Avenue, New York City. The 2021 exhibit features Alex Da Corte’s work on view from April 16th through October 31st, 2021.
