Go West

Postings will be light this week. It's spring break -- l'enfant admirable is out of school -- so we've decided to enjoy the single, greatest advantage of living in Dallas:

The art museums in Fort Worth.

We're heading over to the Kimbell Art Museum, one of architect Louis Kahn's masterpieces, to see what has been hailed as a superb touring exhibition of Japanese ukiyo-e (浮世絵 --"floating world") paintings from the collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Afterwards, we'll stroll over to the Modern Art Musem of Fort Worth, one of Japanese architect Tadao Ando's masterpieces (pictured), to see "Pretty Baby," an exhibition of works on childhood identity.
