Eggleston at the Whitney...Last Chance

Eggleston at the Whitney...Last Chance William Eggleston: Democratic Camera, Photographs and Video, 1961-2008 will be on view at the Whitney through this weekend, closing on the 25th--your last opportunity to view this incredibly dense and varied retrospective of Eggleston's work of the last 50 years.  Eggleston's mark on color photography and influence on both the art and commercial worlds is undeniable.  His images are consistently raw and potent, beautiful and trashy.  Take the time this weekend to head uptown and take in this memorable show. 

Other notables currently at the Whitney:  Alexander Calder: The Paris Years, 1926-1933 which is simply amazing.  And don't miss the buttermilk pancakes at Sarabeth's!
