{Personal Post} Photos :: Street shoots + Basquiat 'The Unknown Notebooks' Exhibit | Brooklyn, NY (Part 2)

In my Afropunk 2015 post, I mentioned Part 2 of the weekend would be in a different post.  Here it is.  Part 3 will come later.  That one has A LOT of photos I need to go through.  Anywho.. on this day.. I decided to soak in all the wonderful quotes that were everywhere in our hotel room, along with some street photo shoots, and then the Basquiat exhibit @ the Brooklyn museum.  Enjoy...

The do not disturb and available sign were too cute.

I snapped this because the scene reminded me of the beginning of one of the Resident Evil movies.  But the more I thought about it.. the more I got weirded out and was ready to cross the street..

One of the worst smells ever.

I wanted some shrimp fried rice SO bad.  The 'adventure' we went through just to get this

Taking a stroll through NoLita and spotted Little MJ . #RIP

'Coffin in the Form of a Sneaker', 1990 - Paa Joe (Ghanaian, born 1945).  In some regions in Ghana, the shape and style of a coffin should make a personal statement reflecting the profession, interests, or characteristics of the deceased.  ...providing a comforting familiarity.

Wolf Within, 2015.  Marble and Bronze.  Inspired by a Native American proverb "A starving man will eat with the wolf".

there lies a special treat with this.  That'll be featured in Part 3.

After roaming the other floors, we reached the Basquiat exhibit.
