Though McPherson Avenue isn't officially designated the CWE's "Arts & Design District," it should be. With the opening of Susan Barrett and Dorte Probstein's stellar projects+gallery, 4733 McPherson Avenue, above, there's even more reason to keep your focus on happenings in the 47-4800 block of McPherson.
Cherry blossoms flanked the entry, above, and red hearts led the way, below, to projects+gallery, devoted to fashion and art.
