  2. Rodin Leaving Nelson-Atkins

    An impressive exhibition of 40 bronze sculptures by Auguste Rodin closes today at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City.

    "In addition to highlighting Rodin’s unrivaled capacity to capture the human spirit in all its nuances, the exhibition will also bring to light his pioneering studio practices. Working in plaster and wax, Rodin created models that he would fragment, multiply, recombine, enlarge and reduce. This unorthodox working method allowed the artist to produce a startling range of sculptural effects, examples of which are on display."

  4. Sheila Hicks’ Fiber Optics

    In our cross-disciplinary, rule-breaking time, does anyone care about distinctions between “art” and “craft” anymore? 

    From the evidence of Paris-based textile artist Sheila Hicks, whose fiber sculptures are poised right on that threshold, the answer is, well, interesting.
