Artist and designer Mike Perry opted to celebrate the release of his monograph Wondering Around Wandering in a non-traditional way: instead of a standard launch party, Perry created a pop-up exhibition of the same name in his Brooklyn neighborhood. The warehouse-turned-gallery eventually gained a new use as a community art space, playing host to pumpkin-painting parties, school groups, art workshops, and performances.
As with all good things, Wondering Around Wandering’s three-month residency is coming to a close…and you—yes, you!—are invited to come celebrate. Read More

When you were little, did you ever make paper snowflakes in art class? Well, papel picado is kind of like that, only much more elaborate. Originating in Mexico, the folk art involves making cuts in colored tissue paper and then stringing the designs into banners. It sounds simple, but the results are gloriously elaborate. Yreina Flores Ortiz, who owns the Etsy shop Ay Mujer, has put a modern take on her culture’s tradition by making banners you'll want to keep up long past Cinco de Mayo. Read More
