Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art made its formal announcement today of the upcoming exhibition of the works that the museum now jointly owns with Fisk University. "The Artists' Eye: Georgia O'Keeffe and the Alfred Stieglitz Collection," 101 works donated to the Nashville, Tenn., university by O'Keeffe, opens Nov. 9 and brings to Arkansas O'Keeffe's wonderful "Radiator Building — Night, New York," Marsden Hartley's "Painting No. 3," Pierre-Auguste Renoir's "Le chapeau epingle (Pinning the Hat)," photographs by Stieglitz, including a self-portrait, one of O'Keeffe, scenes of New York and clouds and other masterworks, and works by Paul Cezanne, Charles Demuth, Arthur Dove, George Grosz, John Marin, Abraham Walkowitz, Charles Duncan, Wanda Gag, Benard Karfiol, Benjamin Kopman, Stanton MacDonald-Wright, Alfred Maurer, Manolo Hugue, Kenneth Hayes Miller, Elie Nadelman, Jules Pascin, Pablo Picasso, Diego Rivera, Gino Severini, Charles Sheeler, Paul Signac, Theophile-Alexandre Steinlen, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Abraham Walkowitz.

Crystal Bridges' bid to share the collection was in court in Tennessee from 2006 to 2012; here's a short wrap-up by the New York Times.

We're going Saturday, Nov. 16, leaving about 8:30 a.m. from the Main Street Parking Deck between 2nd and 3rd streets. Tickets are $99 and include lunch, dinner and delicious mimosas if I don't spill them everywhere. For more information on the trip, email me at lesliepeacock@arktimes.com.

    Lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union asked Judge Kristine Baker to grant an injunction against four laws passed this year by the General Assembly that would: * Make abortion after 15 weeks riskier by outlawing what the medical profession considers the safest procedure, dilation and evacuation; * Require doctors to inform local police when an abortion performed on a teenager age 14-16 absent any indication of abuse and that police create a record of the teenager's abortion and be provided the fetal remains; * Require abortion providers to ask women seeking an abortion if they know the sex of the fetus, and, if they do, obtain all of their previous obstetrical records to determine if they have a "history of aborting fetuses" of a certain sex, as the lawyer for the state said today in court. * Require notification of a woman's partner — or abuser — that she intends to have an abortion, ostensibly so they can agree on the disposition of the remains of the fetus.
