Dan Cassaro, a man of many talents and long-time Ace collaborator — you might recognize his work in room 617 or remember his gallery show from a few months back — proposed to his scientist extraordinaire and highly adorable girlfriend Niamh at Ace Hotel New York. 

He wrote a song, recorded it, pressed it on vinyl and played it for the occasion — and even though that sounds really unromantic and boring, she still said yes. 
We’re honored to be a (little) part of their story, and wish them all the best in the world.

Look! It’s all the places we are! And though born and raised here, today marks the first we’ve ever realized that Oregon does indeed look like a flying piece of toast. These are fifty state mottos illustrated by fifty artists who grew up in the state for which they have raised brush to canvas (or cursor to squiggle tool as it were). The show is called Fifty & Fifty, and it’s curated by our pal Dan Cassaro, in the gallery at Ace Hotel New York. We’re having a reception tomorrow evening, December 18, from 7-10pm. Afterparty really depends on who shows up so make sure it’s you. If you can’t hang out tomorrow night, you can see the show will be up through February 1. Ever upward!
