Sugar Mama loves MoMA

First of all I like to wish every one a Happy New Year and welcome to the new and improved Sugar Mama NYC blog!
Lately, I've been finding myself overtired, overworked and overstressed. I love my job but I felt like I was drowning in an endless sea of Hermes Bags, Louboutin Shoes and Tiffany Boxes; which wouldn't sound so bad if I wasn't talking about cakes. I was beginning to feel stagnated and uninspired; not good for an artist.

The remedy? A truly enlightening afternoon at MoMA where an A-MAZ-ING Tim Burton retrospective is featured.

This is as much as I could capture with my camera with getting in trouble, but the exhibit itself is truly mind-blowing! It features sculptures, sketches, short films that spans his entire career.
One of my favorite pieces was "Vincent," a short stop motion film about a 7-year old boy who thinks he's Vincent Price, narrated by the man himself. I've loved this movie since I discovered it a few years ago and it was cool to see early sketches, sculptures and how in the world TB thinks of this stuff.

If you can't make it, don't worry you can visit the MoMA online store and pick up this book and other cool Tim Burton stuff like journals, tees, DVDs, Postcards, bloody hatchets... ok, no bloody hatchets; just making sure you were still with me.

For you lucky duckies that can make it to MoMA before the exhibit closes on April 26th, be sure to pre-purchase your tickets online because it usually sells out.
$20 adults/ $16 seniors /$12 students/ $0 kids ( 0-16)

Well, being in the Museum of Modern Art, I certainly wasn't going to spend all afternoon with Jack Skellington and Frankenweenie. Here are some other highlights from my visit:

Wouldn't these make awesome wedding cakes?

This is one of my favorite paintings of all time and I couldn't believe I was standing this close to it! For a split second I wondered how far I could run with it before I was tackled, tasered and knocked unconscious; and that's by the other museum patrons much less MoMA security.

Well, it's"bake" to work for me. Thanks for tuning in!
Until Next time...
