10 ΠΡΩΤΕΥΟΥΣΕΣ ΤΗΣ ΤΕΧΝΗΣ

Since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the German capital has reinvented itself as a leading European arts venue, with superlative new architecture, cutting-edge exhibits, and high-end art galleries. That said, it’s not all about the new here. One of the many shining examples of Berlin’s fervent dedication to the arts is Museumsinsel (Museum Island; www.smb.museum), a complex of five museums on the site of an original city settlement. This UNESCO World Heritage arts center features the Alte Nationalgalerie (Old National Gallery; www.smb.museum), celebrated for its German and French Impressionist paintings, plus works by celebrated German artists like Karl Friedrich Schinkel, Caspar David Friedrich, Max Lieberman, and Berlin’s own Adolph von Menzel. The island plays host, as well, to the Altes Museum (Old Museum; www.smb.museum), dedicated to antiquities from Rome and Greece, and the Pergamonmuseumm (www.smb.museum), named after the fascinating 180 BC Greek temple it houses. If that hasn’t quenched your art thirst, another cluster of four museums is found at the Dahlem Museum (www.smb.museum), where exotic art and artifacts from India, Asia, Africa, and the South Seas, as well Native American and Early European cultures, are showcased (note that the JuniorMuseum and the Museum of European Culture are closed here for renovation through 2010 and 2011, respectively). While visiting one of Europe's top cities for art lovers, you should also see the phenomenal Gemäldegalerie (Picture Gallery; www.smb.museum), featuring paintings by many great European masters, from Botticelli to Rembrandt, and the Neue Nationalgalerie, highlighting more recent works by artists like Max Beckmann, Munch, Picasso, Ernst, and Klee. -

Chicago

They might call it the Second City, but Chicago is second to none when it comes to its lively arts scene. The Art Institute of Chicago (www.artic.edu) in itself is reason enough for art enthusiasts to let the winds blow them towards the Windy City – this phenomenal museum, flanked by its two iconic lion statues, hosts one of the world’s finest collection of Impressionist paintings, as well as some fantastic works from more recent art icons including Picasso, Dali, Pollock, and Warhol. Don't miss its much-buzzed-about, Renzo Piano-designed Modern Wing, which debuted in May 2009, making the museum the second-largest in the U.S. Another noteworthy Chicago draw is the Museum of Contemporary Art (www.mcachicago.org), where a broad spectrum of contemporary arts, from painting, sculpture, and photography, to film, dance, and music, can be enjoyed. There are a few very good special interest museums, as well – try the stirring National Vietnam Veterans Art Museum (www.nvvam.org), the rich National Museum of Mexican Art (www.nationalmuseumofmexicanart.org), or the exotic Oriental Institute Museum (oi.uchicago.edu/museum). And don’t forget to keep your eyes open for all of that outdoor public art that you’ll pass in transit – The Loop area alone could earn Chicago a ranking among the top cities for art lovers, as it includes an untitled Picasso (known locally as "The Picasso"), Miro’s Chicago, Chagall’s Four Seasons, and Calder’s Flamingo.
