Our recent throwback to vintage Brooklyn photography had us digging around for more – and that’s when we came across the current Diane Arbus exhibit at the Met Breuer. The exhibit takes a look at some of the iconic photographer’s earliest work, when she was first honing her skills and developing her idiosyncratic style. Every great creative starts somewhere, and we can’t wait to see where Arbus began.

WHERE: The Met Breuer, 945 Madison Ave, New York, NY

WHEN: Until November 27th.

SF: Dali17

“Galatea of the Spheres,” 1932.

Fun fact about Salvador Dalí – although he’s known for producing most of his work in his home of Spain, he did hide out during the war in the 1940s on the coast of Northern California in Pebble Beach. To honor his legacy in Monterey, Dalí17 – a new exhibit of 570 original works by Dalí – now has a permanent home at the Museum of Monterey.

LA: POW! WOW! Antelope Valley
