I love this limited edition Ice Cubes Silkscreen Print by Christoph Niemann. I also recommend his archive of Sunday Sketches.
This painting by Michael Wall is stunning. I would give it a home.

On June 27th, The Bunt Machine opens at The Invisible Dog Art Center in Brooklyn.
It’s a one man performance by my friend, office building mate and artist in residence, Mac Premo. The play is about that familiar intersection between death, learning to listen, M*A*S*H, and baseball. Life, you know!?
The Bunt Machine is directed by Donal Brophy (a divine derelict from Dublin), with sound design by Jad Abumrad (of Radiolab notoriety).
This first run is a short one with limited seating— just six nights, from June 27th through July 2nd. And if you come on June 28th, you’ll bump into me! Excited to see Mac perform!
Here’s a video piece by Mac that I love. And here’s his CreativeMornings talk.
