The Adrienne Farb exhibit opens tomorrow at Holy Cross, and the Cantor Art Gallery has more than cheese-and-crackers. At 2 p.m., in the Hogan Campus Center, a symposium features, among others, Saint Louis Art Museum Curator Charlotte N. Eyerman, the Whitney's Drawings Curator Carter Foster, and New Criterion Managing Editor James Panero. The artist reception starts at 5:30.

Speaking of which, the New Criterion's review is here, a good start to understanding what Farb's lines - see below - are all about.
