Renzo Piano in Chicago

Piano's modern wing of the Art Institute of Chicago opens this weekend and I've got to see it. The elegance of this building isn't surprising--it is a Renzo Piano building after all-- but it is no less impressive because it's somewhat expected. The new wing allows the AIC to show it's works in an optimal setting and the building is so large the curators have pulled out works that haven't been shown in decades.
