Iran, Colored Pencils and Gorillas

Saturday was the perfect day to check out the "Iran Inside Out" exhibit at the Chelsea Art Museum. All I'm going to say is that it's definitely worth a trek to 11th Avenue to see. It is a side of Iran you've never seen. Plus, there is a really cool colored pencil sculpture exhibit on the third floor by Federico Uribe that is amazing (see photo).

On a completely different note, Jane Goodall is coming to the 92nd Street Y this Wednesday, September 2, to discuss her life's work and read from her book Hope for Animals and Their World: How Endangered Species Are Being Rescued From the Brink.

For anyone who isn't familiar with Dr. Goodall, shame on you! She is a world-renowned primatologist, conservationist and humanitarian often pictured with the gorillas that she studied and so carefully tended to throughout her life.

The talk starts at 8:00 p.m.
