Yesterday, we visited the Starrett Lehigh building, which is currently displaying works by Jean-Michel Basquiat.  By the time of his early death in 1988 at just 27, he somehow had the vision and drive to create some of the most recognizable and influential art work out there.  He was a trend setter then, and remains as such, with current collaborations from Coach to Tiffany's, and countless others.  His work was reflective of the societal issues of his time, most of which, unfortunately, are still relevant today.  The exhibit was haunting.

His studio on Great Jones, where he lived and worked, was right around the corner from our office, in one of the most creative hubs in Manhattan. 

The architecture of the exhibit was also of note.  The exhibition's designer, David Adjaye OBE, was the Architect behind The National Museum of African American History & Culture in Washington, DC.  Abbott Miller of Pentagram was responsible for the exhibition's identity.
