Scenes from a Mall
You probably would never venture to a mall for serious art -- unless, of course, you're a fan of old Nagel reprints or "Hang in There!" kitten-on-a-branch posters. But should you find yourself negotiating Memorial City Mall, you can peruse some fine art at the Hokkaido photo exhibit. The show features photographs depicting the vast panorama of Japan's northernmost island, Hokkaido, and shots of annual events like the local Snow Lantern Festival. Consider this an intimate look at the Land of the Rising Sun -- or at least a welcome break from Victoria's Secret and Banana Republic. Exhibit runs through February 6.
