LSA Junior Jim Barry pulled an unconscious man from a burning car on 1-75 after the car hit a truck and caught on fire.

By Elizabeth Lucas
Daily Arts Writer
Though a little older than most, Jim
Barry is not too different from the
average University student. The 26-
year-old LSA junior spent four years
in the Army after high school, and
attended Washtenaw Community
College for two years. He is now a
biology major who plans to attend
medical school.
When Barry and his girlfriend
Kelly Goode, a Pharmacy junior, left
for their summer road trip on Aug. 26,
they didn't expect it to be anything
out of the ordinary. They were head-
ing to Fort Bragg, N.C., to visit an
Army friend of Barry's. But around
1 t p.m., as they drove through
Monroe on 1-75. events took a differ-
ent turn.
"We passed a car that had run into a
semi," Barry said. "There was smoke
inside the car. I started to roll down the
window, and I heard someone yell, 'We
gotta get him out of there.' Kelly
stopped the car. and I jumped out and
ran back there."
Barry said he scarcely stopped to
think about what he was doing. "I was
just thinking the guy would burn to
death. I couldn 't think of any other
thing to do." ~
The car was partially underneath
the truck's trailer, and there was an
unconscious man inside. Barry said.
As he headed toward the accident site.

Goode was watching from a dis-
tance. "As we drove up, we saw all
the brake lights - it had just hap-
pened. You could smell smoke and
rubber burning," she said. "Jim was
like, 'I'm going,' but I didn't want
him to go - I didn't want him to get
Goode called 911 on her car phone,
then called her mother, crying as she
described the scene. "I was scared for
Jim, because I couldn't tell what he
was doing. It was amazing. to see the
flames, and to know that he was
At the acccident site, Barry tried to
open the driver's-side door, but had no
success. Other trucks had stopped
nearby, and people were attempting to
move the car. Someone attached a
chain to the car's bumper and got it out
from underneath the trailer, Barry
"Another guy helped me open the
passenger-side door. and then he
pulled the seat back." Barry said.
"The fire was in the car by now,
underneath the dashboard. The flames
got bigger, and someone sprayed a
fire extitiguisher in the car. Then I
could get the guy' sctbeit. I picked
him up by the neck and the arm and
pulled him out into the road.....I

paramedics arrived, trying to comfort
him. "You just know how it feels," he

Art should appeal to everyone in soci-
ety - after all, anyone can make art.
The University's Museum of Art proves
this with its two newest exhibitions, both
of which opened earlier this month.
The first exhibi-
tion is "Venice:
Traditions Trans-
formed." This is a:
large exhibition,
comprised of 38
works, highlighting
pieces from the
Sarah Campbellx
Blaffer Foundation
of Houston, Texas,
as well as the
University Museum *
and libraries. "Juno and Luna," b
There is a vast Tiepolo, 696,77,
variety of media on
display in this exhibition: paintings,
etchings, woodcuts, drawings, and book
illustrations. The subject matter, though
most often religious, is also diverse,
including landscapes, mythological
images and scenes of everyday life.
The Venetian exhibition features art-
work from the 16th and 18th centuries,
Venice: Traditions
V What: Featuring paintings, draw-
ings, prints and rare books from 16th
and 18th century Venice
V When: Until Jan. 12
" Artists: The Circle of Giorgione,
Pietro degli Ingamati, Veronese,
Jacopo Bassano and Francesco
Bassano, Tintoretto, Antonio
Bellucci, Sebastiano Ricci, Michele
Marieshi, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo,
Pietro Longhi, Francesco Guardi

considered by 'many to ,be the two
Golden Ages of Venice. The pieces are
arranged according to date for easy com-
parison. When viewing these works, one
can see the influence of other art move-
ments, and in the case of the 18th centu-
ry art, the influence form the first
Golden Age.
This is one of the
Museum's bigger
shows, and will
remain on exhibi-
tion until January.
Much has been
planned for the
occasion, including
special lectures.

spectacular exhibit,
featuring some of the great matcrs of'
all time, such as Tintoretto. VcruneCse,
Bassano, and Longhi.
However, anyone, or even anything,
can make art, and the University
Museum apparently agrees, since it is
currently displaying paintings created
by an elephant!

The "Komar, Melamid and Renee"
show also debuted recently, and is the col-
laborative work of artists Vitaly Komar,
Alexander Melamid and Renee, a 14-
year-old African elephant who lives at the
Toledo Zoo. This exhibition is slightly
more ephemeral than the Venetian show.
Renee has been painting for the past
10 years, as a form of mental and
physical exercise. Komar and
Melamid's history is slightly more
complex. They met over 30 years ago,
and have used their intelligence and
wit to challenge the way that most
people tend to think about art. Past
projects. of Komar and Melamid
include renting a billboard in New
York's Times Square to advertise a
business specializing in the buying
and selling of souls, as well as the cre-
ation of two fictional artists, each with
a full biography and complete retinue
of work. The artists provocateurs are
currently at work on a project devoted
to the life and imai e of George
Washington. Their \ urk is highly
thought-provoking and oftentimes
controversial; Komar and Melamid
were both expelled from Ohe Moscow
Union of Artists for other work.
In 1995, after hearing of the ele-

phant, Renee,
Komar and
Melamid went to
Toledo to work
with this new tal-
ent. In the course
of one week, the
three drew much
attention from the
public - they also
created five
works, all of
which are on dis-
play at the Museum.
The canvases are
