Venice V Is Los Angeles’s Coolest New Beachside Hotel

When a California hotel bears the name of its neighborhood, it’s also expected to embody its ethos. The Beverly Hills Hotel, with its banana leaf wallpaper, red carpet entrance, and 43-dollar McCarthy salad, conveys its ultra-wealthy, Hollywood heavy, hillside enclave. Meanwhile, the Sunset Tower exudes the same bright-lights, heart-pulsing aura as Sunset Boulevard below. So when Venice V—a new boutique property perched right upon Venice Beach—adopted the moniker of its area, it gave itself some high stakes.

Western Artists Continue to Rise in Hong Kong, Driving Global Market Higher

The global pandemic caused auction sales to fall 20 percent in 2020 due to the cancellation of live auctions and the improvisational nature of the hybrid auctions that replaced them. In many respects, keeping the drop to only 20 percent was a remarkable display of global demand for art at the top auction houses. Christie’s, Sotheby’s, and Phillips have bounced back in 2021 to post auction volumes at or above pre-pandemic levels. Auction house executives often point to the boost in buying from clients based in Asia to explain last year’s mitigated fall and this year’s strong rise. In December 2020, Hong...

“I didn’t think, when I walked into the company, that I would be the CEO. I did expect to be successful though.” These words were spoken by the empowering Ursula Burns. Burns wears many hats, but the one that she’s best known for is being the CEO of Xerox. Burns is the first black woman to lead a Fortune 500 company. While Burns will tell you, “This is not really a good thing to celebrate,” from 2009 to 2016 she was the first and only black woman to wear this corporate crown in America’s history. Burns serves on the boards of American Express, Exxon Mobil, Diageo, Nestle, and Uber. Through her hard work, she acquired another CEO position from 2018 to 2020 with Veon, a company that serves Eurasian countries to deliver digital communications. She is a mechanical engineer by training, graduating from what was then called Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute (now NYU Engineering) and earned her master’s degree from Columbia University.

This is what we loved about DC the most, lots of cool places. Glenstone is DC's area best-hidden gem, tucked away in nearby Potomac, MD. The museum look super futuristic and has lots of cool photo ops for the "Gram! We really enjoyed the beautiful sceneries, art installations (the Split-Rocker by Jeff Koons) and work of arts by Warhol, Pollock, and Basquiat. Admission is free but you have to reserved for a time slot. Would highly recommend it!

Andrew Cotton's Pop Iconology

Pop Iconology allows us to reference a culture in such a way that visual familiarity, recognition, and acceptance is reinforced through relatable imagery. These pop styles, movements, and aesthetics are all tools that artist, Andrew Cotton uses in his contemporary portraits that give us an unusual hybrid model of unsymmetrical duality.
