If you're in the Boston area or Eastern Massachusetts and into mid-century modern, you may want to check out the new exhibit "Birth of the Cool", running at the Addison Gallery of American Art at Phillips Academy in Andover, MA. The gallery's site says that the exhibit "presents over 150 objects that examine the painting, architecture, furniture design, decorative and graphic arts, film, and music that launched mid-century modernism in the United States and established Los Angeles as a major American cultural center." The title comes from Miles Davis’s 1949 album, "Birth of the Cool," and runs through April 13. Best of all, it's free!
