There is an extensive exhibit dedicated to Albers at the Columbus Museum. Always admired his incredible works.

If you like Albers check out also Victor Vasarely. Look in Google images.

Albers had a red, white and black istallation over the Pan Am Building escalators as they plunged down into Grand Central. Everyone thought it was wall tile. When they redid the lobby as ghastly kitsch, this was removed. Now the lobby's back to being Bauhaus, but the Albers is gone for good. Wonder if some workmen dumpstered it, thinking it was construction debris.
