But for art, we're willing to bend our no-bears policy just a smidge, as the animal-centric exhibition "Zoomorphic," on view through August 17 at ASU Art Museum, doesn't include live claw-wielding, sharp-toothed beasts. Instead, the show presents works in ceramics, painting, and print that combine animal forms and human ideas. For example, William Wegman's lithograph Cub Scouts shows two scenes: one of a bear frightening a pair of scouts, and another portraying a sout terrorizing a pair of cubs. Maybe we'll come around after all.
The exhibition is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, August 15, at 51 East 10th Street on ASU's Tempe campus. Admission is free. Visit www.asuartmuseum.asu.edu or call 480-965-2787.
