Berlin to Open Cold War Exhibit

Here's good news for art fans in Germany: The Associated Press is reporting that Berlin will unveil a new Cold War exhibition at the former Checkpoint Charlie border crossing - a step toward setting up a permanent museum about the standoff between East and West.

The "BlackBox Cold War" exhibition uses posters, newspapers, videos and other artifacts to narrate the conflict from Germany's post-World War II division to the collapse of the Soviet Union.

It opens Friday and is expected to remain for at least two years. Supporters hope to complete a larger, permanent museum at the site in 2015 or 2016.
