The Eero Saarinen exhibit "Shaping the Future" on display earlier this year at Wash. U's Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum is now headed to New York.

While St. Louisan like to lay claim to Saarinen for his design of the iconic Gateway Arch, New Yorkers also consider the Finnish architect their own for his creation of the swirling TWA terminal (image below) at JFK Airport.

If you missed the Saarinen exhibit in St. Louis and plan to be in the Big Apple this fall and/or winter, make it a point to check out the exhibit. It runs November 10 through January 31 at the Museum of the City of New York.
