There is a tiny gem of an exhibition of view at the Mint Museum UPTOWN through Saturday (tomorrow), and if you’re at all able to see it, you must. The Mint has a fabulous permanent collection that is often overshadowed by traveling exhibitions, but you have a brief opportunity to enjoy a selection of highlights. Modern Musings is mounted in a small room across from Viva Moschino! and showcases nineteenth and twentieth century works on paper from the collection. Artists include Henri de Tolouse-Lautrec, Amedeo Modigliani, Camillle Jacob Pissarro, Giorgio de Chirco, and Edvard Munch. The show is not flashy and does not come with a hashtag, but is full of the spirit of modernism in the form of prints, drawings, pastels and watercolors by a number of true masters.
Our recommendation: Prime yourself for the new exhibition The House that Modernism Built at the Bechtler Museum by first visiting the small but mighty Modern Musings.
