Human Errors 

Leave it to an avant-garde artist from New York City to confuse audiences with his abstract work, in Carroll Dunham Prints: A Survey, which is on display in Oberlin. Although Dunham's collection brims with vibrant colors and care to detail, it also distorts body parts. Take the print in which a gunman's nose is shaped like a penis. "This is the first show to offer a comprehensive look at this revealing part of the artist's oeuvre," says Allison Kemmerer, the show's curator. "It is this marriage of opposites that makes the graphic work so compelling." The exhibit is on display from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays, through Sunday, March 23, at the Allen Memorial Art Museum, 87 North Main Street in Oberlin. Admission is free. Call 440-775-8665 or visit
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: March 1. Continues through March 23, 2008
