Rainy Day Art Round-Up

Rainy days are the perfect backdrop to a museum visit. Of course, that is if you're not holed up in an office somewhere today like most of us are. 

Here's FF's round-up of interesting exhibits taking place at museums near you:

-Guggenheim Museum: Kandinsky, Sept. 18-Jan. 13, In celebration of the Guggenheim's 50th anniversary, the museum displays a full-scale retrospective of the visionary artist, theorist, and abstraction pioneer.

-Whitney Museum of American Art: Georgia O'Keeffe: Abstraction, Sept. 17-Jan. 17, Georgia O'Keeffe was known for her sensual flower paintings but often overlooked for her more abstract pieces. This exhibition includes more than 130 paintings, drawings, watercolors, and sculptures by O'Keeffe as well as essays, excerpts and correspondence that give visitors a journey into the life of the artist.

-MoMA: In Situ: Architecture and Landscape, until Jan. 18, This exhibit draws from the rich
collection of The Museum of Modern Art to examine the diverse attitudes toward landscape over the last hundred years.
-Rubin Museum of Art: Red Book of C.G. Jung, Oct. 7-Jan. 25, The first public presentation of what may be considered psychology’s most influential unpublished work. Jung’s obsession with mandalas—Tibetan Buddhist representations of the cosmos used to help reach enlightenment—comes to life in the form of sketches and paintings.

-The Met: American Stories: Paintings of Everyday Life, 1765-1915, Oct. 12-Jan. 24, A powerful look at the images that depicted life in America in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.
