    Exhibit showcases Brazilian culture
    Tucked in a room at the Boca Raton Children's Museum is a hands-on exhibit celebrating all things Brazil. "F.A.C.E.S. (Florida Art and Cultural Education through Storytelling) Brazil," sponsored by the Brazil International Foundation, runs through Dec....
  • Lucas museum has a brave new architectural look

    I’m not sure why the proposed Lucas museum has to be on the lakefront, but I think that it’s another brave new architectural look — and isn’t that what Chicago is about? People will probably be raving about it after it’s...
  • Visit Cleveland to help envision Lucas museum

    Two years ago I was in Cleveland for a wedding and made it my business to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum on the shore of Lake Erie. This museum is no mistake by the lake. I believe the Lucas museum would offer Chicagoans and our many...
  • Proposed museum design is shocking

    The architectural renderings of the proposed Lucas museum on the lakefront, appearing in the Chicago Tribune, are a shocker. If it’s built to this design, the museum is going to be a big white sand dune and an eyesore amid the picturesque...
  • Museum could be a winter hit

    In response to Tribune architecture critic Blair Kamin’s Nov. 6 critique of the proposed design of the Lucas museum, where one person sees a “blob,” I see a sledding hill. If George Lucas  allows the children of Chicago to sled off a...

    San Fernando Valley's Discovery Cube L.A. opens in once-vacant museum

  • At 50, Music Center's 'backward' orientation may see a turnaround

    At 50, Music Center's 'backward' orientation may see a turnaround
    If practice is what gets you to Carnegie Hall, as the saying goes, what gets you to the Music Center has always been a car. The performing arts complex, which will turn 50 next month, sits atop Bunker Hill in downtown Los Angeles like a late-modern,...
  • Chicago History Museum: Telling the essential stories of our American city

    Chicago History Museum: Telling the essential stories of our American city
    On weekends, the Chicago History Museum is not stuffed to bursting with newcomers to the city, but it ought to be. One of the highest best uses of the information-rich institution at the south end of Lincoln Park is its ability to ground people in the...
  • Students board train for glimpse into Boca's past

    Students board train for glimpse into Boca's past
    — The 1947 streamliner rail car at the Boca Express Train Museum hasn't moved an inch in three decades, but Friday it brought students back to a past when less than 1,000 souls populated Boca Raton. To get on board with this, though, students...
  • Picasso exhibit at Dali's place is a must-see

    Picasso exhibit at Dali's place is a must-see
    I don't need additional incentive to visit The Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, one of the must-see art attractions in Florida. So it's not surprising that I made the opening weekend of the new "Picasso/Dali, Dali/Picasso" exhibit, a display of more...
