Some of the best art that you'll ever come across may not be hanging on the walls of a traditional museum or an art collector's home. It can be found in the lobby of an office building, on the wall of your favorite watering hole or in a public space, free and open to anyone who wants to enjoy. Take, for example, Andrew Douglas Underwood: An Archive of Shadows, an exhibition on display at SMU. Underwood's exhibition represents the act of collecting and archiving as art itself, which is perfectly at home in a university library gallery. An Archive of Shadows is on display now through February 5 at the Mildred Hawn Gallery of the Hamon Arts Library in the Owens Arts Center, 6101 Bishop Blvd. on the SMU campus. The gallery is open during regular library hours. Call 214-768-2303 or visit smu.edu/meadows.
