Matt Haffner's Scenes from a Hero's Tale makes one ponder all of the ways movies have come to define codes of behavior and morality. In a time when real-life heroes seem as rare as an honest man in Washington, the movie heroes portrayed by Humphrey Bogart, Clint Eastwood and Arnold Schwarzenegger have become our icons of what is sexy, cool and brave.

The "hero" in Haffner's works is the...

If you're on the prowl for an exuberantly horny satyr in the guise of an Englishman from the 1960s, don't even think about Austin Powers. Georgia Shakespeare Festival's What the Butler Saw proves that playwright Joe Orton can still get it up, despite the inconvenience of being dead since 1967.

Like some bastard son of Oscar Wilde and Benny Hill, Orton blends eloquent epigrams and naughty...

Before the Chattahoochee River became Atlanta's Big Gulp, there was a little tributary trickling through the city called Peachtree Creek, which quenched the thirsts, powered the lights and baptized the souls of the city's citizenry.

Photographer and urban explorer Dave Kaufman was so drawn to the idea of this forgotten crik around which much of Atlanta once flourished, that he put his canoe...

If you are an artist within a 150-mile radius of Atlanta and have ever included a car or highway in your artwork, chances are you are featured in Reading Between the Lanes: Artists on the Road at Spruill Gallery.

There are some 38-plus artists represented in the show, resulting in a serious visual bottleneck. In addition to artwork, the show features odd tchotchkes like a vintage model car,...

The stodgy old dioramas and woolly mammoth skeletons of childhood natural history museums have now given way to super-fly multimedia infotainment bazaars like Fernbank Museum of Natural History's The Genomic Revolution, whose design features myriad video screens and the sound and light effects of Ridley Scott's Blade Runner.

The exhibition, which originated at New York's American Museum of...

The five artists in The Man Show at the Georgia State University Gallery want you to feel their pain. But with its idiot box title and an opening night reception sponsored by Hooters featuring a keg of beer and hot dogs (get it?), the irony is that even as men try to shrug off gender stereotypes, society keeps forcing them to conform.

With one notable exception (artist Angus Galloway's...

Ideas of solitude and alienation read loud and clear in the Savannah Gallery show Sense of Otherness. There are countless images in this group show of men, women and children frozen in stock-still, rabbit-in-the-headlights poses that convey feelings of estrangement and dislocation.

Otherness tries to make a case for the cultural specificity of that sense of isolation by centering the show on...

It's no joke. Sean Daniels, artistic director of Dad's Garage Theatre, has stepped down to accept a new position as resident director and associate artistic director of San Francisco's California Shakespeare Theater.

As a performer, director and community leader, Daniels, 31, proved a tireless advocate for new plays, improv comedy and original ways to reach young audiences. Daniels and seven...
