If you are in or near Bentonville on Wednesday, Jan. 7, check out the lecture by Joachim Pissarro at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Camille Pissaro's great-grandson is the co-author of "Wild Art," which Crystal Bridges describes as a

"visual exploration of the vast spectrum of art that resides outside 'The Art World.' It presents a highly illustrated account of the most exciting, bizarre, and amazing examples of 'other' art worlds — from pimped cars and graffiti to extreme body art, ice sculpture, and flash mobs-this book has them all. Wild Art examines the question of what constitutes 'art' in a way that will make readers look at the world around them in a whole new light.

The lecture is from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Pissarro is the Bershad professor of art history and director of the Hunter College Galleries at the City University of New York. He is a former curator for painting and sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art.

    We don't get to post all the jpegs of artwork on exhibit that come into the office, but they have more allure and tell you more about the work than what I can write about them. Hence this slideshow of work from shows opening tonight (Aug. 10) for 2nd Friday Art Night, 5-8 p.m. (see the To Do list for more information), and other openings and shows this weekend and in the days ahead.
