On behalf of our entire team at Red Rooster, I would like to thank First Lady Michelle Obama for asking us to be part of the Luncheon on the occasion of the 68th United Nations General Assembly. Even though I personally was unable to attend, it was an honor to have our team welcome the First Lady and her guests to The Studio Museum and share with them the food, the art and the neighborhood that I call home.

Guests of Rooster know Thelma as our dear friend and our patron of the arts, and we’re so excited for her conversation with MoMA director Glenn D. Lowry on February 7th.

Topics discussed will include their take on how our galleries and institutions capture artistic communities and history, held in conjunction with MoMA PS1′s exhibition Now Dig This! Art and Black Los Angeles 1960–1980, which will be on display through March 11.

If you haven’t gotten a chance to see the exhibit yet, it’s worth checking out to see this examination of a pioneering group of African-American artists whose individual as well as collaborative talent with other artists helped shape a large part of Southern California’s art scene today. As well as viewing at least 140 works by over 30 artists, this exhibit also examines the increasing political, social and economic power of African Americans throughout the U.S.

On set with Ann for Today Show segment

We’re closing in on week one of the “Yes, Chef” tour and the reception to the book has exceeded all my wildest expectations. My amazing PR team and I hit the ground running with two segments at the Today Show on Tuesday morning where we demo’d my mother’s cabbage rolls with Ann Curry (good luck and thank you for your kind words), and had some fun with Hoda, Kathie Lee and my “Yes, Chef” cocktail.  Read More

Geandy Pavon: Painting With Substance

The Studio Museum in Harlem Resized

You don’t even need to step inside the Studio Museum in Harlem to expect the unexpected. The red, black and green American flag waving high above its doors indicate you’re in for something different.

The epitome of this resides in Cuban artist Geandy Pavόn’s head.

Born in Cuba in 1974, Pavόn pursued street art with his group called La Zampana, or “The Bell,” while attending Las Tunas Art School.  Of course, in such turbulent times during the 80′s in Cuba, rebelling against the established order wasn’t welcome. Eventually he left Cuba for a better life in the United States, specifically New York, where he studied at the National Museum of Fine Art for four years.
