Ai Weiwei in BK!

IMG_9223One of the main reasons why I love New York is because of all the amazing art and artist.  A couple of weeks back I went to see the Chinese artist /  Political  Activist  AiWeiwei , According to What?  at the Brooklyn Museum . The exhibits were awesome and the messages were very clear.  A lot of the pieces dated  from theQing Dynasty. (1644-1911) and most of the stills were mainly used from life. I loved the stories each piece told and  how the break down of the actual craftsmanship is presented. The main print I went for was  “The Names of the Student Earthquake Victims

Names of the Student Earthquake Victims Founded by the Citizens' Investigation , 2008-11

Names , year ,age and sex of each student

” it was a black and white  print created When Ai put together the Citizens ‘ Investigation Project . The goal was to compile a list of all the  children who died in the collapsed school houses. The list , which records the name , year,class and sex of each victim , has grown to include over 5,000 names . The Investigation continues.

The installment in front of me is called  Wenchuan Steel Rebar , 2008 -12 IMG_20140622_154430 Ai Weiwei uses rebar recovered from the rubble of collapsed school houses in Sichuan following in the 2008 earthquake.  these pieces touched me the most because as a preschool teacher  and a human being it would destroy me inside to come to school one day only to discover all of my babies had been taken away by such a horrific tragedy . I honestly was blown away to see each installment together in person . I could never know the pain these families went through but , through these  amazing pieces they live on .

The Exhibit even had a lot fun areas and lots of beautiful installations that were whimsical and very creative .

Thank you ….. and your welcome .

The year is now 2014 and besides turning 28, A lot of crazy , sad , spectacular and ridiculous things have happen . Most of you don’t know this but, my blog is five years old lol . “When did it start ” my page officially started December 2009 and was called “BI-Challenged” , but due to a large mass of followers thinking I was “BI” I changed the name . When I first moved back to New York in 2011 the name was changed to “Little Dolly Big City” because of all my funny mis-adventures on the daily and has been that way ever since. Currently for almost a year now I was blessed back into the hearts of the small .My small wonders reside in “The Burg” and that’s how most of my days have been starting now.

Followed by my boo , Hello immediately after

Still partying hard and in December of 2013 I was accepted into “Bank Street college of Education”. I’m going back to college to obtain a CDA in early childhood education.
God has been really good to me last year and since the new year has started …it seems I’m still getting into mischief , bumping into wonderful people and strolling into amazing events ! .
My Dear Friend Lu came to visit , he his friend Ian and I went to visit “A-1 records

The shop was also recently featured in Pharrell Williams song “Happy”



This was a blast and ever need of dope Vinyl immediately ask for Mike. The place is surrounded with records top to bottom and you can sample before you purchase!.

This weekend though I was invited out to see an Off Broadway performance called “Sex Tips For a Straight Woman from A Gay Man”
Omg I laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes


Honestly posting pics of what happened wouldn’t even do the show justice lol best comedy I have seen so far this year . Hopefully I’ll see more than that as the months roll in , don’t worry I’ll keep you posted these are my small updates look for more this week !

Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival (The DJ Hero returns) Morri$

Every year in Brooklyn for those of you who don’t know there is an Electronic Music Festival. A festival of crazy set’s,ridiculous beats and rhythmic melodies… for Brooklyn this was the 5th year.

This year it was held at Public Assembly , a spot in Williams burg that holds a lot of great acts, parties and events.  I had been here prior due to another event but, I heard about this one via my Homeboy “RECIOO”  I had to come out.

I know a lot of you are just starting to read my page and  you don’t know that I do a lot of interviews . The first really dope music interview I had , was with a lil Kansas smart kid a used to work with back in the day . The interview was so great and full of passion I knew one day it would go absolutely far and would return one day with a harder punch then it did the first time . The interview was with my friend whom which I call “The DJ Hero” but, the whole world knows him as “Morri$.

Yup Morri$ came to home my town and not just on some simp stuff, but with even bigger 808 kick drums , sharp rolling snares and bigger frames then when we first met ! lol . He wasn’t the only fam that came to visit like I said my boy “Recioo” , “MRSWTRS” and the lovely “OH Juicy”came as well . The fam all met back up to support our friend for a little over four years now. I love the vibe we all had the memories and Morri$ set was so awesome and we were all proud!

The set started real smooth .. made you twerk and ended out face down ass up ! lol  Just like his sets used to when he first got started back in the day . lol

Shot out to Morri$ congrats once again on your success and we all continue to support and follow up !
