"Flashing Lights" -Paparazzi Pics (Pt. 48)

The roof is on fiyahhh! Last Monday, I slide over to the Sybarite & Scion hosted "Urban Renaissance" art showcase, held at some really spacious yet intimate loft w/ an adjoining rooftop terrace over on the far West side of Chelsea. I wasn't sure what it was but, heard Fly Lady Di, Concep, and Ibrahim, had art been shown, plus the info came from a great source so, I went with the gut. Paid my $5 "donation" took the elevator up 13th floors to.....Niiiice!
I was a great all white space, with a SICK view of Hudson River and the sunset. The "get open" bar of fine wine help add to the atmosphere that I know Dinna (Alexanya) was shooting for. Had I known about it before hand, trust me, I would've most definitely put you on. I'm not stingy like that. Met and built with RIP from Writer's Block on what's going on creatively round town and in BK in general. Cool dude, by the way. Memo to self I gotta get them on board to perform at the "Rock the BlocK" event we're cooking up Aug.9th (yes, an ol' yet new style block party). Anyways, I left the event after the dance performance (DisterNYC) with some cool new contacts, a good buzz off the wine, and a bunch of really dope pics. Go head take a look.

I am glad you enjoyed the event. The sybarite cast and crew worked really hard to make the event as "NIIIICCCE" as it was. Just wanted to point out the other artists exhibiting were Alaric S. Campbell, Dister NYC, Barron Claiborne and Dwayne Rodgers. Look out for the September event.

Thanks.
