Rainbow brights

Just one more reason to get back up to New York very soon: Moma just opened a new exhibition called Color Chart: Reinventing Color, 1950 to Today, an eye-popping collection of bright, bold works from contemporary artists that runs through May 12. (If NYC isn't on your current travel schedule, the exhibit website gives a comprehensive look at the selections for the show.) A few of the ones I can't wait to see up close and personal:

The Ellsworth Kelly, above.

Andy Warhol:

Jasper Johns:

Gerhard Richter:

It almost seems unfair to put these pictures here, in their computer-sized, web-resolution versions. Still, if these don't get you in the mood for spring's colorful clothes, I don't know what will.
