It might be possible to walk into the Walters Art Museum and not notice the enormous black spider with spindly, 3-foot-long legs climbing the wall opposite the elevator.

But it is unlikely. The arachnid is practically the size of a Mini-Cooper. Plus, it looks really scary, like something out of Jurassic Park, something you wouldn't ever want crawling near you.

If you go Louise Bourgeois: Femme runs Saturday-May 21 at the Walters Art Museum, 600 N. Charles St., 410-547-9000 or thewalters.org, and the Contemporary Museum, 100 W. Centre St., 410-783-5720 or contemporary.org.
