It was one of the first warm and sunny Sunday New York had experienced this season but I was feeling a bit lackluster. The sun was shining and the streets were stirring. I decided not to let my emotions get the best of me, instead of lying in bed all day, I decided to go solo and get some inspiration from the arts. I remembered the "David Bowie Is" exhibit was on at the Brooklyn Museum and decided to take a chance on the sold out exhibition. Luckily, I charmed my way in.
I also realized the weekend was the 2 year anniversary of the death of singer Prince. As I stood in line surrounded by music fanatics, dressed in David Bowie tee shirts and makeup there were also museum attendees clad in purple. At that moment it occurred to me that I hadn't ever seen these two iconic men in the same space.
Prince and David Bowie's images transformed before our eyes. They seemed to transcend time and space, their art, their style, and what I found most intriguing was the ability of both men to exude raw sexuality without conventional masculinity. These men are icons and their art a contribution to history, pop culture, fashion and music is unmatched.
