Bechtler Museum of Modern Art

Bechtler Museum of Modern Art 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, however. The rotating collection might include Warhol's pop art, Giacometti's dark sculptures, and ceramics by Picasso. Founded by Swiss-born Andreas Bechtler, the museum highlights his family's love affair with art, as well as their deep connections with many of the artists on display.
