MoMa and Lego; Insects at AMNH
I think this is rather funny, but MoMA and LEGO are teaming up to launch a LEGO set Inspired by Vincent VanGogh’s “The Starry Night.” The 3-dimensional set reimagines the renowned painting in LEGO form emphasizing VanGogh’s striking brush strokes and colors. You can buy it starting June 1st in the MOMA store and LEGO locations globally. I don’t know what the price is, but it certainly sounds like fun. Get details at https://store.moma.org

The tomato behind The Three Tomatoes.
Cheryl Benton, aka the “head tomato” is founder and publisher of The Three Tomatoes, a digital lifestyle magazine for “women who aren’t kids”. Having lived and worked for many years in New York City, the land of size zero twenty-somethings, she was truly starting to feel like an invisible woman. She created The Three Tomatoes just for the fun of it as the antidote for invisibility and sent it to 60 friends. Today she has thousands of friends and is chief cheerleader for smart, savvy women who want to live their lives fully at every age and every stage. She is the author of the novel, "Can You See Us Now?" and co-author of a humorous books of quips, "Martini Wisdom." Because she's lived a long time, her full bio won't fit here.
