Ode to Renzo

This NYT Architecture review of the new Art Institute Modern Wing is practically a love poem.

I like that the connection to Mies van der Rohe and the Arts Club of Chicago was made-- I noticed it too, so I'm glad I wasn't just making it up.

I want to go back soon and see that Twombly exhibit again, I can't stop thinking about it.

Both works are Cy Twombly, Untitled (2001)

Update: The Twombly exhibit is called Cy Twombly: The Natural World, Selected Works, 2000-2007. The Art Institute's site/ associated images for the show can be found here.
