John Mayer made an appearance in the Hamptons over the weekend, and visited the Stephen Talkhouse two nights in a row. This may not come as much of a surprise, since the Talkhouse has amazing live music and John Mayer likes to party. But what was up with his outfit choices? He kept his hood up almost the entire night on Friday (as if that will deter any attention or gawking) and supposedly got into a bit of a scuffle at the bar (his friend was pushed down in the street). [Update: Talkhouse wants to clarify that John Mayer left their establishment an hour prior to the scuffle, and that in fact the one pushed was not friends with John Mayer. John Mayer's name was mentioned in the argument, which may have caused confusion.] He then decided to come back on Saturday, decked out in none other than a poncho. Yes, a poncho. John Mayer, you can be so tantalizing at times, but why a poncho? Turns out he sells ponchos on his website too!
Guess it's better than when he pulled this stint...

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
