Arts: Yay for Spring Exhibitions!

One good thing about the early days of spring when it's still too cold and mucky to really go out, but every fiber of your being is screaming 'GO OUT!': There are almost always good art exhibitions to see. I'm such a fan of free museums, but, sadly, those are few and far between (St. Louis and DC? Anywhere else?) Here are the upcoming exhibitions (and current in some cases) for several cities. Now you have no excuse - Go Out!
