In the Wings
The Henry Luce Foundation has helped make visible storage the solution to an increasing number of museums' art-overflow problems. The latest is New York's Brooklyn Museum. On January 14, 1,500 objects go on view in the Luce Center for American Art: Visible Storage/Study Center, a 5,000-square-foot space designed by the curatorial staff.
Circle of Friends
In the 1920's, photographer Alfred Stieglitz turned collector Duncan Phillips on to home-grown modernism.

Pull Up a Chair
A scholar, an educator, a filmmaker, and a designer collaborated on "Chairs" at Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Starting February 11, the show looks at the history and cultural importance of this iconic seating type, drawing on the photographs of the Gardner's artist in residence, Dayanita Singh, as well as on multimedia presentations and the museum's permanent collection.
This year, the annual symposium at New York's Fashion Institute of Technology draws connections between art and glamour—and goes beyond just clothing. During the two-day event, on February 25 and 26, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art curator Joseph Rosa will dissect SFMoMA's recent "Glamour, Fashion, Industrial Design, Architecture."
