  Art Spaces: The Menil Collection
Art Spaces: The Menil Collection
Published by Scala Publishers Ltd.
Price: $7.95, Member Price: $7.15 + tax

The Art Spaces series focuses primarily on the architecture of the world’s great art museums. For Art Spaces: The Menil Collection, assistant curator Clare Elliott’s text summarizes a history of the collection, the commission of the building, a brief look at the works in the collection, as well as an examination of the outlying satellites on the museum’s campus. Originally thought of as a concise guide to the architecture of Renzo Piano’s first US commission, Art Spaces: The Menil Collection functions as a pocket-sized guide to the collection as a whole and not just its container. Special attention is given to how the works in the collection are exhibited with numerous illustrations of the galleries and storage rooms. This book is a much-needed and desired addition to our growing number of Menil Collection titles.
