I am traveling to Colorado in June, and I making a one day stop in Kansas City just to see this new addition (and of course the collection). I for one think it looks brilliant but I'll reserve my final opinion for after the visit. I'm pretty stoked.

Blair Kamin's review -

http://www.chicagotribune.com/travel...pagetravel-hed

tidbits -

"It is a work of subtlety, not spectacle, though, in truth, it packs some unexpected "wow.""

"Not since Frank Gehry's startling eruption of metal, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, made its smashing debut 10 years ago has a museum been this enchanting."

"Some of these spaces are as spiritual as chapels."

Have you ever been to an art museum before? I don't know about you, but I see photographs of what may be some of the bightest galleries I have ever seen. Any more lumens, and I might be worried about damage to the art.

A part of me says "This is silly, those materials won't make it to the mid-century without looked D-A-T-E-D" but then this other part of me is like "Those are gorgeous, how peaceful, I like stuff that glows in the dark"... and then one tiny part of me is going "My city is getting a crazy-people's art museum too, so I better not throw stones from the window of my 61 story glass house"....

All in all, I think that now, currently, it is beautiful. But I do worry about how it will age, simply because of its cheapish looking siding stuff.

the New York Times gushed about the building today:

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/06/06/ar...ts&oref=slogin

"Mr. Holl has often talked about the desire to imbue his buildings with poetry. Here he has done something more: He has created a building that sensitizes visitors to the world all around them. It’s an approach that should be studied by anyone who sets out to design a museum from this point forward."
