"It’s strange, but I believe it was destiny for us to meet here in this big crazy city [New York] where we both came to pursue our dreams to make music." Raquel Berrios and Luis Del Valle of the Spanish-language experimental pop project Buscabulla grew up on the same island, but didn’t meet until New York City brought them together. Following their performance in #MoMAGarden, the pair sat down with PopRally’s #CreativeNewYork to talk destiny, community-building Puerto Rican recipes, how parenthood influences art, and more.

Discovered in 1912, Corythosaurus casuarius was named for the soldiers of Corinth who wore curved helmets thousands of years ago. The dinosaurs had circular head crests that reminded famed fossil hunter Barnum Brown, who first found the animal, of the ancient gear. Alive during the Late Cretaceous, about 75-80 million years ago, Corythosaurus were duck-billed, had short arms, and walked on all fours. While they took slower strides than their predators (such as T. rex), they had more endurance. Corythosaurus themselves were herbivorous and ate twigs. You can find Corythosaurus in the Hall of Ornithischian Dinosaurs: https://goo.gl/dN58bR

Similar non-functional rifle actions were regularly shown at national trade shows including the NRA Annual Meetings in the past. For salesmen as well, these attractive and informative cutaways were important tools in convincing dealers to purchase inventory during their regular circuit visitations.

In 1955, Robert Rauschenberg moved to 278 Pearl Street, joining a growing community of artists living near the southern waterfront area of Manhattan. Jasper Johns, now Rauschenberg's partner, had the loft below him. The pair looked at and discussed each other's work every day. After the city condemned the Pearl Street building, Rauschenberg and Johns moved to another industrial loft at 128 Front Street in March 1958. Here Rauschenberg explored his relationship to the past, incorporating references to classical mythology and literature and creating drawings for each of the 34 cantos of Dante’s Inferno.
