Stephanie Land @ Pen & Brush Gallery

Our Lady Steph had a piece of hers [ Paris ] selected for a group show at the Pen & Brush Gallery. Whoohoo!

It was a really cool space and the people were irie. The gallery is a converted brownstone in the East Village (jeez).and to my little happy heart's surprise - BOOM! - Roy DeCarava was there. Living Legend right there in the flesh. Im familiar with some of his work but never got to put the face to it all.

The coolest thing was him candidly talking about how he and Langston Hughes met in Harlem and their following collaboration.

How crazy is that?!
That's what i love about NY; history's just walking around all the time out here.
