To give some of its watercolors a rest from gallery lighting, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art has replaced them with new works, all but one from the late 19th century and none previously announced as being part of the collection.

Installed are a 13 1/2 x 9 3/4 in. watercolor of people on a beach by post-impressionist Maurice Prendergast (above), painted circa 1896-1897; a 16 3/8 x 23 3/4 in. bronze by Augustus Saint Gaudens of Gertrude Vanderbilt at the age of 7 (below), 1882; a 30 x 25 in. painting by James Earl, "Lady Mary Beauclerk, Daughter of Lord Aubrey and Lady Jane Beauclerk (1793-1794)"; a figurative watercolor by Arthur Bowen Davies (1895) and watercolor landscapes by George Inness, John La Farge and George Henry Smillie, all created between 1880 and 1900.

  • LIVE LIFE CHILL NOT DEAD DONE GONE

    Contrary to rumor, Live Life Chill, the bar/restaurant in the erstwhile Revolution Taco and Tequila Lounge space at the corner of Cantrell and President Clinton Avenue, is not closed. Service manager Lindsey McFadin called the Times this afternoon to say a rumor the bar had closed was killing business; by 3 p.m., no one had been in. The Times, too, had heard the rumor from a number of sources. What has changed, McFadin said, is that the bar is now only open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
