Ok so i'm not sure if somebody else posted this already but I am so excited that i have to say this. I just recieved a letter from the Brooklyn Museum regarding the anual Gala ball. It says the following. "The brooklyn museum is proud to present the extraordinary Takashi Murakami retrospective this april, which recently opened at the Los Angeeles Museum of Contemporary Art to rave reviews and record breaking attendance. MURAKAMI will be among the most ambitious and largest exhibitions we have brought to our New York audiences. The plans for this years ball are phenomanally exciting, and we are thrilled to co-host this event with Louis Vuitton. Artist Takashi Murakami will be among our esteemed guests, Grammy Award winner Kanye West will perform live,...(T)here will also be a live auction with several luxury items including merchandise by Louis vuitton and a VIP experience with the New Jersey Nets." IM SO EXCITED!!!!!!! I live so close to the museum i can walk to the event! I wonder what items they will be auctioning! Probably some of his special louis vuitton collaboration pieces.
