Art shows offer baseball aficionados another outlet

Didn't get a ticket for opening day? Tired of all the hoopla about the new stadium but still interested in baseball? Then consider a visit to two local art shows on the subject. At the University of Maryland Baltimore County's Kuhn library and gallery is "Major League/Minor League: Photographs by Jim Dow," a show of 33 color panoramas of stadiums, big and little, around the U.S. of A. If you hate it you can go out to Oriole Park on Thursday and boo him -- he'll be there photographing the newest major league stadium as part of his ongoing project. Call (410) 455-2270.

At the Katzenstein Gallery is "Baseball: America's Favorite Pastime," a group show including works by Martin Barry, Neal Gallico, Tim Kelly, Jim Opasik and David Orbock. These are in various media including Orbock's panoramic photos, Gallico's paintings, Opasik's sculpture and Barry's drawings. Call (410) 727-0748. "Les Miserables," Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg's Tony Award-winning musical based on Victor Hugo's 19th century epic novel, returns to the Morris A. Mechanic Theatre for a four-week engagement beginning Wednesday. Last season the megamusical sold out a record-breaking nine-week run at the Mechanic.

Curtain times for "Les Mis" are Tuesdays through Saturdays at 8 bTC p.m. and Sundays at 7:30 p.m., with matinees on Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. through May 3. There is also a special matinee this Thursday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $43.50-$48.50. For more information, call (410) 625-1400.


J. Wynn Rousuck At Towson State University, they're not bashing Japan but honoring it. Traditional and contemporary arts of Japan and four other Asian countries will be highlighted during TSU's Asian Culture Week, Monday through Saturday.

The week will include lectures, films and demonstrations at various campus locations, culminating in Saturday's Festival of Asian Cultures, featuring seven professional arts companies, including the internationally known Shizumi Dance Theater. Tickets to the festival, which is scheduled from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Fine Arts Concert Hall, are $8, $6 and $4.

For more information on the festival or the Asian Culture Week activities, call (410) 830-2807.
