We're taking a few days to break and enjoy the food, company and warmth of the holiday. We wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukah. Here are a few highlights current and upcoming to look forward to this winter.

Freelancing photo journalist and innovator Weegee (1899-1968) has a show opening at International Center of Photography in New York opening this February. His current exhibit, Naked Hollywood, at Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles runs through February 27th.

Beauty and the Book, an exhibit of 19th and 20th century decorative art folios begins at The Art Institute of Chiacago on February 28th.

The curiosities and unanswered of the 1960s movement Fluxus is explored at University of Michigan Museum of Art this February.  (February's turning out to be a busy month)!

On a more serious end note, I want to take a moment of pause to ponder the works of John Chamberlain, who passed away yesterday at the age of 84. His larger-than-life metalworks and mixed media pieces made of discarded car parts awed us with their intimidating scale and gnarled presence.
