    Looking Back - Amish textiles enliven the DAM, while Lewis and Clark artifacts fill the DMNS.

    The objects on display are only the most visible aspects of exhibitions. There are other key components that, though less prominent, are equally essential. The most important of these is the idea underlying the display. Without an idea -- even a bad ...

    Sketchy Comedy - A tired Parallel Lives dwells too much on the past to be funny.
