EXHIBITION — Sept. 2-Oct. 16, 2011Lyonel Feininger: At the Edge of the WorldWhitney Museum of American ArtNew York, N.Y.If you’re a fan of Bauhaus and German Expressionism, catch the encompassing Lyonel Feininger exhibit featuring diverse aspects of his artworks: paintings, miniature wooden figures and buildings, photographs and essays focusing on his lesser known works, such as his comic strips. This retrospective exhibit of Feininger’s career will have you enamored by his romantic, crystalline paintings of architecture and seascapes, and since it's the first in his native country in more than 45 years, it's one you won't want to miss. The exhibit opened in late June and travels next to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, January 20–May 13, 2012.Catch Feininger's exhibit before it ends on Oct. 16, then attend a concert at Carnegie Hall on Oct. 21, featuring "Bauhaus Bach" premiering three of Feininger's fugues performed by the American Symphony Orchestra. The concert will explore the inspiration Bach exerted on German modernism in the first half of the 20th century. For ticket information, visit
