Test prep professional Akil Bello appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe this week to talk about The Test & the Art of Thinking and the impact standardized testing has on underserved communities. See the interview here:
Serendipity. We left our Swiss hotel thinking it was a Mimi Kind of Day, bright and cool. Imagine our surprise when we spotted this advert in Basel: the elegance, the pose, that Hat. A chance encounter with the unforgettable icon of sass and style and the star of the Canobie Films documentary Hats Off, whose message to “rise above it” resonates in any language.
Mimi brought glamour and fun to whatever role she was playing and in how she lived her life. “Time for me,” says the ad. How fitting. Mimi is timeless.
Canobie Films remains busy creating episodes of our series on Libby, while Libby’s been busy creating PhoebeNewYork. Through Phoebe, Libby continues to challenge and expand the boundaries of the artist’s experience with and without NYC galleries and art shows.
Our series documents how Libby blurs the lines among street, performance, commercial and fine art forms with collaborators and supporters including Teen Vogue, Lululemon and others. Libby’s — and Phoebe’s –network of fans love her distinct talent, independent ways, and fun and irreverent style.
You won’t want to miss the evolution of this unique and empowering female artist, revealed in Canobie Films’ upcoming docuseries. Stay tuned.
New York Fashion Week may be long gone but PhoebeNewYork remains as stylish as ever, thanks to staff at Lululemon Athletica Soho Women’s store. Artist and Canobie Films docuseries subject Libby Schoettle brings her fashionable and empowered “It Girl” to the window display at Prince and Wooster. Stop by to see a life-size PhoebeNewYork flex her unique kind of muscle as she continues to catch the eyes of passersby on the streets of the city. [Photo credit: @lucababiniphoto]
