Tonight I attended a free large-scale light installation at Columbia University’s Lenfest Center for the Arts called Waterlicht, which means “water light” in Dutch.
Waterlicht is a three-day only installation designed by Dutch artist Dan Roosengaarde.

Finnish artist Tony Sjöman works on an almost-finished mural, located on the fifth
floor of a new luxury residence at 277 5th Avenue.
Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to participate in a studio tour organized by the American Scandinavian Society. Sjöman showed us several of his murals that are in walking distance from his studio. We ended the tour by returning to his studio for a Q&A session and a few bubbly drinks. A lovely time was had by all!
