WSJ Says ‘Don’t Miss’ Niki at the Bechtler

The Wall Street Journal has some advice for its readers: Don’t miss “Niki de Saint Phalle: Creation of a New Mythology,” the new exhibition that opened 18 March at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Under the heading “A Playful Sculptress,” the Journal includes the show in its “Don’t Miss” section for the week of 9-15 April.

As the Journal notes, the exhibition includes some 60 works by Niki de Saint Phalle, in addition to five large-scale sculptures on outdoor display in the Green next to the museum.
