Wonderful.

Miami Art Museum is doing a similar deal for the 4th (2 for 1 admission), although no special exhibit on American art. Other museums should take note; such holiday exhibits are a smart way to attract visitors on their day off.

It would be a treat to see Jasper John's flag painting(s) at the Whitney.
