Where to Go and What to See

This week, I wish I were in the Windy City so I could check out the Museum of Contemporary Photographys intriguing exhibit on the complexity of urban planning. Edge of Intent presents the concept of the city—and all the associated issues it presents for the public—as seen through the eyes of 10 different photographers. The timing of the exhibit is perfect: This year marks the centennial of the debut of the original Chicago city plans.

Thus, with its exploration of the inflexible ideals of urban planning and the oft-overlooked repercussions for city dwellers, Edge of Intent serves as a dubious celebration.
