In the News
Two separate staff members passed on articles from two different sources about the Art Institute of Chicago's new Modern Wing, designed by Renzo Piano, that just opened. The New York Times covers it here, noting that this makes the Art Institute the second largest art museum in the United States, and adding two slideshows, one of art on display in the new wing (complete with an elegant, referential shot of a gallery of paintings by Gerhard Richter with a blurred visitor in the front who could easily be in one of Richter's paintings) and one of images of the building itself. The Art Newspaper also covers the opening of the wing.
