Alisa showed us around her charming West Village apartment for a tour of her collection of art, books, and antiques.
“I love antiquarian books in the home; they’re so fun to browse and such a great conversation piece. For hard-to-find, inexpensive books, the following places are pure gold: Freebird Books & Goods in Brooklyn, Argosy in Midtown, and Bonnie Slotnick Cookbooks in the West Village.”
“One of my most memorable experiences with art was walking among 650+ participants in the Deitch Art Parade in 2005, for the NYC-based fashion designer, Rebecca Turbow. We were all dressed as “Safe Girls” in her trademark teal and white color combo at the time.”
“A few artists that inspire me are Erin Lynn Welsh, Ashok Sinha, Adrian Tomine, Jack Potter, Vermeer, David Burliuk, Olivo Barbieri, Dan Flavin, Ariel Alasko, and Adam Turnbull.”
