You might toss your to-do list at the end of the day, but many artists and writers held on to theirs—and even illustrated them. Eighty lists from Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, Eero Saarinen, and more are now at the Morgan Library & Museum in New York. Lists: To-dos, Illustrated Inventories, Collected Thoughts, and Other Artists’ Enumerations from the Smithsonian’s Archives of American Art features agendas of places to see, illustrated catalogs of completed works, and summaries of daily tasks including a 1963 packing list from painter Adolf Konrad, shown. As an exposé of the noteworthy minutiae constituting these and other well-known figures’ daily lives, the exhibit is worthy of a spot on your own to-do list. Through Oct. 2. • themorgan.org
