Season Opening @ ASU Art Museum Get an eyeful of art and performance when ASU Art Museum celebrates the opening of its new exhibitions. On view are "Traces of Japanese Life: Selections from the Melikian Collection," "Born of Fire: The Pottery of Margaret Tafoya," "Trajectory: Miguel Palma," which closes February 9, and, the newest of the bunch, "Cu29: Mining for You."

"Cu29" artists Clare Patey and Matthew Moore will be in attendance, along with Charles King, who penned a book about potter Margaret Tafoya's work, and artist Holly Hanessian, who will invite attendees to participate in her project Touch in Real Time, which will be exhibited in Pittsburgh this fall.
