The Whitney Museum of American Art has always been one of our favorite places to visit. Currently on exhibition is the work of the great American sculptor, David Smith (1906-1965). Cubes and Anarchy offers new insights into the artist's career-long involvement with geometric forms and reveals the artist's iconic late masterpieces to be continuations of his long-standing explanation of geometric abstraction. The exhibition includes over sixty sculptures, paintings and drawings, as well as rarely-seen sketchbooks and photographs. The show schedule is October 6, 2011 - January 8, 2012.
