Looking forward to checking out this exhibition at the Art Institute! Hopefully Henry and I can make it downtown when the weather is a little nicer.

Growing by Design
This is the title of a new exhibition at MOMA. I read this article in the New York Times about it and was intrigued. I wish I could just hop a plane to check it out! Luckily, MOMA has a fantastic interactive website for this exhibition. It features tons of images and information.
