Starting today at the Center for Visual Art, 1734 Wazee Street, (REAL): Photographic Constructs spotlights a wide range of local and national artists who push the envelope in artificially constructed works. Look at the pictures of clocks, leaves and hands separated into 31 boxes highlighted with, say, an old children's block or other item designed to spark memories and you may get a sense of time past, but remember: It's just an illusion. The opening reception for (REAL) begins at 7 p.m.; admission is free. For more information, go to www.mscd.edu.
