In this week's Scene, Joe Nolan lets us in on what's happening in everybody's favorite monthly block party, the Downtown Art Crawl. Read up, pick a favorite piece, and wax knowingly about it with your date over free wine and magic-hour lighting. You really can't lose — if you can find parking.
The Arts Company is getting fashionable in May, displaying a show of photographer Norman Lerner's stylish snaps along with a selection of jewelry and accessories inspired by his photographs. Lerner was a fashion and commercial photographer in New York in the '50s, '60s and '70s, and his work has been shown at both the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. LollyDee creates couture clothing and jewelry that nods to midcentury fashions while remaining entirely contemporary. They've created an array of clothes and accessories using Lerner's photographs as a jumping-off point, and tonight's festivities will begin with a live fashion show spotlighting this special collection.
