BANKSY does NYC
British Street Artist "Banksy" anointed himself "Artist in Residence" of New York City's Streets for the month of October, 2013. Dodging the police and trying to be as elusive and mysterious as possible, here are some of his creative artworks, done by Banksy - "outside" - on the streets of Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx.
Chelsea Art Exhibition
People ask why I want to have an exhibition in the streets, but have you been to an art gallery recently? They're full.
|Some people criticize me for using sources that are a bit low brow (this quote is from 'Gladiator') but you know what? "I'm just going to use that hostility to make me stronger, not weaker" as Kelly Rowland said on the X Factor.|
|Banksy's Sphinx - surrounded by junk and a puddle.|

|As a part of his Art Residency, Banksy set up as a street vendor for one day only, selling his original works for $60 each. Each piece could be worth thousands if not tens-of-thousands.|
|"Sirens of the lambs" - puppets and noise makers in a traveling "Farm Fresh Meats" truck / concept piece.|
|To enhance your enjoyment of the exhibits an audio guide is provided via cell phone. Simply call the number next to the painting and select the appropriate option on the keypad. This is a toll free service. 1-800-656-4271 #1|

(You have to take a jpeg of it to a copy store and make the T-Shirt yourself!)

Today making a mixed greens salad at home is as easy as opening a box of mixed greens from the grocery. Here is a good way to finish that salad off.
Make a vinaigrette with 1 part vinegar (I use rice vinegar) to 3 parts EV olive oil, add a pinch of salt, and 2 grinds of pepper, plus the squeeze (the juice) of 1/2 lemon (or a good squirt out of bottled lemon juice.) Mix into an emulsion. In a large salad bowl place the mixed greens and some of the vinaigrette, then toss. Transfer to salad plates and top in a teepee shape with shaves of Parmesan cheese, using a vegetable peeler (makes long strips.) Drizzle the salad with a little bit of balsamic vinegar and serve.
