You have only nine more months to visit the always enjoyable Terra Museum of American Art, which will close its doors on Michigan Avenue at the end of October. The museum is currently featuring a terrific collection of New York Times photographs from the 1950's; that exhibit closes this Sunday to make way for what will be the final exhibition, which looks to be a "greatest hits" of the Terra collection. A Narrative of American Art opens on Valentine's Day. Admission is always free. (See ArtNet for another opinion on Terra's downfall.)
