Since the High is basically the only art museum gig in town (what happened to programming at the Michael C. Carlos Museum, anyway?), it's really important for the institution to stop playing the same old song. Degas & America: The Early Collectors
, was the latest in a suite of popular shows at the High since the mid-1990s, and the third impressionist show originating at the High in the past two years. And in October, the museum presents Monet: A View from the River
. When is enough finally enough? With its contemporary Richard Meier design, the High seems like the perfect setting for world-class exhibitions of contemporary art.
