Bob Eckstein will be roving around Manhattan tomorrow, drawing and commenting for The New York Times as he tailgates at various locales. By going to this link you can follow his exploits.
This October, The School of Visual Arts will honor Edward Sorel with its Masters Series Award and a retrospective exhibition. For all the info, click here to visit the SVA site.
