The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation was started 18 years before his death in 2008……giving grants to people whose work and ideas would not happen without support from the foundation.
There are over 250 works in this exhibition………..you will have to plan on several hours to fully appreciate this exhibit.
This is Roberts “FISH HOUSE”……..part of his 20 acre estate on Captiva Island where I used to vacation in Winter.

Judith Lieber has been in the handbag industry for sixth five years…..starting out in Budapest before moving to New York.
Many of her handbags…….fascinating and luxurious…………are encrusted with Swarovski crystals. She began her company in 1964 and designed her last handbag in 2004.
Her handbags cost about $5000………the older ones sell for a lot more.

His constructions were on exhibit at the New Museum in the Bowery.

He who descends………..risks disappearing!
