eero saarinen: one week left

finally made it to the eero saarinen: shaping the future exhibit that is at both the minneapolis institute of arts and the walker art center.  the work at the MIA focuses on saarinen’s airports and memorials and embassies, while the work at the walker features his corporate companies and college campuses.  saarinen, i learned, designed the dulles international airport and the twa terminal at JFK airport and, oh yeah, christ church lutheran in south minneapolis.

the best part of the exhibit is at the MIA, an excerpt from a documentary about the completion of the st. louis arch, another one of saarinen’s projects.  it’s intensely captivating.

the exhibit closes at both museums on sunday, january 4.  one week left!  hurry!
