The well-heeled matron in Diane Arbus' 1968 photo resembles no one so much as the Muppet Miss Piggy, with her silver curls peeking out beneath a turban, oversized pearl earrings and dramatic makeup. The fur collar she wears is so white, long and fluffy, it seems about to swallow her head. "Woman with a Veil on Fifth Avenue, N.Y.C. " is unquestionably arresting — but it's merely one of 200 striking images in "Seeing Now," an exhibit at the Baltimore Museum of Art opening Sunday.

Baltimore Museum of Art director Arnold Lehman said yesterday the museum is "increasingly committed" to building a wing for 20th century art at its Art Museum Drive site, but has not completely given up the idea of a downtown branch at the Power Plant instead.His comments came in the wake of an announcement earlier this week by David Gillece, acting head of Center City-Inner Harbor Development Inc., that he will not select a developer at this time from the proposals submitted in the fall, of which the museum's was one."

The plight of the characters in Victor Hugo's French classic "Les Miserables" resonates for nearly every country and generation. That may be why Claude Lelouch's film of the same name seems such a natural fit, even though it tells the tale of a man (Jean-Paul Belmondo) who befriends a family fleeing Nazi persecution.Sunday, the film will have its premiere in Baltimore, with a wine reception sponsored by the American Jewish Congress' Maryland Chapter. The guest of honor for this benefit showing will be Tristan A.J.C.

From 1893 to 1903, Pierre Bonnard created more than 35 images for a seminal French literary and artistic journal called La Revue blanche, as well as giant posters advertising the periodical. These early lithographs by Bonnard were gestural sketches that built on Impressionism's "fleeting moments" concept by layering on meaning and patterns. "Anybody who is anybody reads La Revue," the image hints. "Read it, and you too can be somebody." It was a message that was perfectly consistent with the populist agenda that Bonnard and his friend Edouard Vuillard espoused.
