The other day my wife and I were talking about the artist Chuck Close's portraits, and ever since then he seems to be popping up. Yesterday it was in the Otherworldy show at MAD. And today it was while looking for something in the AIA Guide to New York City*. Between entries the Guide mentions a mural by Close on the side wall of 26 Prince Street, between Mott and Elizabeth Streets. Amazingly I've never noticed this mural, even though I've traversed this stretch of Prince Street many times. Where might Close pop up next for me?

*Interestingly, I accidentally picked up an old edition of the Guide and stumbled across this bit on Close that isn't found in the latest edition.
