I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday Minimalism/Maximalism

What: Minimalisim/Maximalism

Where: Museum at FIT
             227 W. 27th St.
             New York, NY

Who: Teens and Up

When: Through November 16, 2019

Mom's view: The current exhibit at the Museum at FIT is all about extremes. It ranges from completely over the top fashions with vibrant colors, huge adornments, and elaborate beading and more to the starkness of very bare simple designs in muted colors. It explores the cyclical nature of design and how often (although not always) periods of one extreme are followed by periods of the other. Items in the collection include a heavily adorned Versace ensemble, a big bowed Agatha Ruiz de la Prada evening gown, a sparse Adrian suit and a sleek black Calvin Klein gown. Some handbags and shoes are also included as part of the collection. Shoes in the collection range from the ostenatiousness of  a pair of Iris Van Herpen shoes with a design that look as if the shoes were rescued from the garbage heap to the bareness of a pair of plain white Stan Smith sneakers.Although the Museum's exhibit space is small quite a few items are packed into the space so how quickly it will take you to go through the exihibit depends on how carefully you wish to examine each item and whether or not you want to read all the accompanying signage. The museum is not a good place for young children especially those that have a desire to touch everything, and the majority of the exhibit would probably be uninteresting to young children anyway. The Museum at FIT  is free and is open to the public Tuesday through Friday from 12:00 PM to 8:00 PM and Saturdays from10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

And that's Mom's view. Tune in tomorrow for Theater Thursday.
