Damien Hirst – End of an Era

Went to the opening reception of the Damien Hirst “End of an Era” show at the Gagosian Gallery.  I have to say, I’m a bigger fan of his older work. Not to say 30,000 manufactured diamonds displayed in a gold case, is not impressive… it was. But I was distracted by some of the characters that showed up the the opening… not sure which was more entertaining, the people or the art itself.
