Art from all over in Ann Arbor
Video fever in A
By Jill Beiswenger
Art is an index of civilization, a way
to communicate beyond national and
regional boundaries, and a reflection of
culture in its fundamental forms.
If you agree with all of that, you'll
find justification for your beliefs quite
easily in Ann Arbor. The variety of art
on exhibit in Ann Arbor's galleries and
museums is remarkable. This includes
just about any medium you fancy and
represents nearly every corner of the
And believe it or not, gallery owners
actually like it when you browse and

Alice Simsar Gallery, 301 N. Main.
This gallery features contemporary
prints, sculptures and paintings,
primarily of East and West Coast ar-
tists. Often these are works of well
known artists with international
DeGraff-Forsythe Galleries, 201
Major pieces by American and inter-
nationally known artists are on exhibit
here. There are oil and acrylic pain-
tings, sculpture, and sometimes
tapestries. The owners feature some
Native American works and also
specialize in Latin American artists.
Phoenix Gallery, 225 S. Ashley.
This gallery places its emphasis on
smaller pieces, mostly paintings, sculp-
ture, drawings, and prints of local and
regional artists. The owner is looking
toward expanding the selection from
artists farther afield in the future.

their favorite high tech game, the
Union is planning to install a complete
arcade room on the ground floor as part
of its renovation program.
David Mitchell-Yellin, the recreation
coordinator for the Union, said that the
arcade will probably have 25 to 30
machines, which would be "a mix of
pinball and video games."
"We'll have mostly video,".said Mit-
chell-Yellin, "but there are still a lot of
Most students who try out different
places recognize the advantage and-
disadvantages of the arcades.
"Smugs has better deals, but the
Union has a better Destroyers
machine," said Steve Markevich, a
senior in the business school.
The arcades, however, are not the
only place to gorge yourself on your
favorite computerized fare.
All of the dorms have at least a few
video games on which to fritter away
the hours when you should be studying.

THE UNIVERSITY'S Museum of Art hosted a special exhibit of art works by Leonardo da Vinci this summer. The -
museum's regular collection includes pieces by artists of many styles and eras, including works by Claude Monet;
James McNeill Whistler, and Andy Warhol.
Blixt Gallery, 229 Nickels Arcade.
The work of artists like Imogene
Cunningham and Andre Kertecz is
shown here, along with many other
equally talented, but lesser known ar-
tists, making for a great variety. The
gallery also sells books of photography
and frameable posters.
Lotus Gallery, 617 E. Huron.
As the name implies, the selection of
this gallery is primarily Oriental:
Korean, Chinese, and Japanese. There
are paintings, prints, ceramics, and
jade and bronze from the Orient. But
Lotus also features antique pottery and
basketry from the Hopi Indians of the
southwestern United States.

attractions on campus. It is located at
the corner of State and South Univer-
sity Streets. On the first floor are oil
paintings by Italian, Spanish, Dutch,
and Flemish painters of the 15th cen-
tury and later. Also on display are
works of American art, which include
a 19th century painting by Eastman
