    There is also an exhibition at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art in Charlotte, Mario Botta: Architecture and Memory. It runs until September 1st.

  • Thanks for these suggestions! Unfortunately there aren’t any around me in Colorado mentioned, but I always love a good exhibit!

  • Thanks, Jennifer! I just added an exhibit at the Denver Art Museum, hoping you are near enough to catch it. Looks like a good one! Thanks for reading our blog!
