This Halloween, the hottest seasonal attraction will be a house of political horrors.
Our very special thanks to RJ Rushmore for his help and expertise. Pigeons have been a vital feature of New York's skyline
The Brooklyn Navy Yard is infested. 2,000 pigeons have come home to roost on a defunct aircraft carrier. This is Fly by Night, the newest project by Creative Time, a socially-engaged arts organization best known for the Tribute in Light, those ghostly beams that punch the sky over Manhattan every year in the week running up to September 11th.

Creative Time and the Central Park Conservancy combine to make a wonderland of graceful, low environmental impact but high cultural impact moments to interact with the north end of the park in all its lush spring gloriousness. Don't miss this: it closes June 20.
Just when you thought you were doing the objectifying, Kara Walker and her sugar sphinx prove the artist is always in control
Outside the venue, a very long line winds down and around several blocks. Art aficionados wait patiently in the sun. Inside, the exhibition visitors wander and wonder. THE MARVELOUS SUGAR BABY regally inhabits the space.
Kara Walker's sugar sphinx descended upon Brooklyn last month, bringing well over 35 tons of sweetness to the cavernous darkness of the old Domino Sugar Factory.
One might forgive Serrano for his use of neutralizing euphemisms in the titles for all three art projects -- I know firsthand from running my museum that the mere mention of the word "homeless" can shut doors, eyes and minds.
Because I am an "emerging" artist, I can say whatever I want. I am mercifully un-tethered to a gallery or institution.
