One of the busiest art shows I’ve ever seen returns to New York this week- Spoke Art’s annual Wes Anderson-themed exhibition “Bad Dads,” which attracts collectors, fans and those who love to dress like his characters (always a lot of fun). Artist Brian Leo’s colorful myriad of cartoony drawings open at Amy Li, a massive group show curated by Melissa Mccain-Welles kicks off at Azart Gallery, and cutesy arty toy store My Plastic Heart hosts a two-person East vs. West Coast Show. The gorgeous grounds of Wave Hill in the Bronx invite guests to chat with artists in their current show after perusing the gardens, and Michael Alan brings his “living installation” for visitors to become a part of for its 13th anniversary.
