Dear friends,

Welcome back to Miscellaneous – our no-frills round-up of the cultural items inspiring our team. Featuring exhibits, concerts, experiences, reading material, music, and more, we’ve been sharing the things that moves us since 2017. 

This edition features picks from around the studio that we hope will bring you some warmth, joy, and comfort!


Perhaps you’re on your way to MoMA to take a snap at the Barbara Kruger exhibit? Might as well catch Never Alone while you’re there!

Pet a lamb or catch a workshop at the Dutchess County Sheep and Wool Festival!

Have you been drinking too little coffee? The 2022 New York Coffee Festival is Oct 7-9th. Bring me back a venti PSL, please!

The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze®, need we say more?

It seems weird to describe a cemetery as beautiful, but this one simply is. For the perfect Halloween atmosphere, Greenwood Cemetery is open for after-hours tours starting at 6pm on Fridays and Saturdays through the Fall, with concerts in the catacombs on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Ralph Fiennes is Robert Moses in Straight Line Crazy by David Hare, Oct 18 – Dec 18, at The Shed.
