We’ve long been fans of the talented Mr. Banksy, ever since we did that Babesta Beat photoshoot with Katrina Tang (check our video out here) where we recreated some of his most famous works (Pranksy & the Playground Mob)! We just went to see the immersive Banksy exhibit in NYC, which is a fun afternoon and will inspire some good, provocative family conversation around topics like consumerism, war, equity, police, government or, if that's not their bag, at least about apes & rats :)
One of our favorite off beat things to do in(ish) the city! For residents and visitors alike, a mini-get away (with a tremendous view) to Governor's island to glamp overnight at the Collective Retreats property. Great food, great fun for a date-overnight or with the whole fam. Check it out!
OK, we'd all agree it stinks to be going into a long weekend that's traditionally fun with family and friends amidst the quarantine. But with nice weather expected, admit it, it could be worse. Here are some things we've been collecting from our trusted sources to make the weekend feel more festive.
OK, it’s kind of boring right now, being bound by the four walls around us. But we can still explore the world! Thanks to Google Art & Culture and an international cadre of museums, we can explore and get inspired by some of the world’s best artists and creatives in a new way. See Andy Warhol at the Tate Modern or get to know Roald Dahl a bit better – you can even make your own chocolate wrapper ball in homage to one of his pastimes. Check out Babesta’s list of 5 virtual museum tours to enjoy right now!
