one of my earliest memories is roaming the back halls of #AmericaMuseumOfNaturalHistory
- after hours - where a #canoe
similar to this one at the 77th street foyer was displayed at floor level. i played around it, and practically in it (in those days) but after its restoration, the piece was suspended from the ceiling. the museums of nyc were my “play grounds” as i adored going to work with my mother. her incredible office, the architectural details and scale of the grand halls... that was my true start and where my passions began, and to this day, i am still in awe.

brought me right back there... totally different boat, totally different place.... but that feeling remains
