Best Underground Art

  • Cotton Candy Machine

    235 S. 1st St., nr. Roebling St., Williamsburg; 718-387-3844

    Cult artist Tara McPherson’s fanciful giclées and pastel-hued concert posters aren’t the only moon-age daydreams lining the walls of her studio turned art shop. With the help of Cotton Candy co-founder Sean Leonard, the gallery space looks like a Juxtapoz layout sprung to life, its every inch bursting with graphic paintings, collectible toys, and street-smart prints from the likes of David M. Cook, Bwana Spoons, and Miss Van. Pillows, stickers, T-shirts, iPhone skins, and an impeccable art-book selection complete the picture.
