Six Art Exhibitions to See Now

Six Art Exhibitions to See Now

We don't know much about the art world schedule's typical ebb and flow, but judging by all the stunning shows that have crossed our transom in the past week or two, this fall seems like a winner. There are so many exhibitions we're dying to see that we decided to put together a little roundup of our favorites.

Jim Walrod on His “Difficult” Exhibition at R & Company

It’s not news that certain works by designers such as Ray and Charles Eames, Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown, or Ettore Sottsass deserve a place on a podium.

Atlanta Artist Kevin Byrd

Dazzle camouflage was a frenetic patterning applied to ships during World War I to scramble the depth perception of enemies — not exactly a motif you'd expect to see applied to the walls of a major corporate office. Yet inside the new San Francisco headquarters for Dolby, Atlanta painter and dazzle enthusiast Kevin Byrd was given carte blanche to do just that.
