Robert Mapplethorpe: November 4, 1946

Today would have been Robert Mapplethorpe’s 68th birthday. I have been reading Patti Smith’s book Just Kids, and her words make you fall in love with New York City and Robert and his dedication to his art. Robert dedicated his life to art and reading Patti’s memories of their life is inspiring and beautiful.
