The Bechtler‘s new exhibition, The Art Books of Matisse, opens Friday morning. It’s a traveling exhibition from Bank of America‘s art collection. Not much information is available so we’re interested in checking this one out soon.

WEEKEND

Saturday, February 28 is the last day to check out Maja Godlewska and Andreas Bechtler’s exhibitions at the New Gallery of Modern Art. It’s also the last day to see Raul Diaz: Journey at Jerald Melburg Gallery. Sunday, March 1 is the last day to see Beyond Craft at the Mint Museum Uptown. Why not make it a fun-filled art weekend and the aforementioned galleries and the three uptown museums that encompass the Levine Center of the Arts? Did you know you can buy a 2-day pass to visit the Mint, Bechtler, and the Gantt Center for just $20 total? Sounds like a great deal to us, especially if you haven’t seen the Gantt’s new show yet, Venturing Out of the Heart of Darkness.
