TWA Takes Off
Site-specific work by Vanessa Beecroft, Jenny Holzer, and other artists is scheduled for an October 1 arrival at Eero Saarinen's TWA Terminal. "Terminal 5: A Project for Air Travel at John F. Kennedy Airport, New York" is sponsored in part by jetBlue Airways, which plans to take over the 1962 landmark.

Presented by the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, the show highlights the architect-designer's sculptural furniture—celebrating the raw beauty of wood. Archival prints, sketches, and photographs round out the offerings. Opening September 12.
