As January comes to a close I am thinking about the goals I've set for this year. I don't do resolutions anymore since the one I set for 2008 didn't pan out (flossing). Still haven't mastered that one yet and my dentist keeps sending me cheery reminders to make an appointment. So I'll stick to goal setting and to-do lists and leave the resolutions out of it.
One of the things I want to do in 2009 is to make a list of all of the books I read and each year challenge myself to Read More Books.
Read any good books lately? I'm up for suggestions.

Queens International 4

The Queens Museum of Art is proud to open 2009 with Queens International 4, the fourth installment of its biennial, on view January 24- April 26, 2009. The exhibition "aims to present the neo-culturation of Queens as a growing model for society at large. The artist's non-conventional collaborative, interactive and public art practices are an example of this cultural theory at work within the realms of culture, identity politics, geo-political spaces, aesthetics and environmental issues."
I will be showing new work from my Guayabera series. Join me at the opening this Saturday January 24th 6pm- 12am!

Cash Rules Everything Around Me- C.R.E.A.M.

Don't worry C.R.E.A.M. is not my anthem for 2009. I just couldn't help it cause I went to a financial planning workshop today at the Jersey City Museum and then watched a marathon of Entourage at my friend's house in JC, but I am serious about getting my finances in order this year! Susan Lee was the guest speaker and specializes in tax and financial planning for artists/freelancers. She spoke about cash flow, budgeting, tax preparation and goal setting. It was very informative and her personality and anecdotes kept it interesting. The Jersey City Museum is hosting a series of Professional Development Workshops for artists in 2009 so get on their mailing list and get informed.
