Fodor's Review

With the famed "Firebird" sculpture out front, there's no way you can miss this 2010 addition to Uptown's art scene. Covered in mirrors and colored class, Niki de Saint Phalle's 17-foot, birdlike creature is just a taste of what Bechtler has to offer inside. The rotating collection might include Warhol's pop art, Giacometti's dark sculptures, and ceramics by Picasso.
