Jeanie Weiffenbach, who stepped into the post March 1, exhibited nationally known artists whose work tackled abortion rights, child sexual abuse and corporate media dominance during the past decade as the San Francisco Art Institute's director of exhibitions.

Argentine painter Fabian Marcaccio and Los Angeles architect Greg Lynn are fascinated by the idea of evolution. So they've created their own mutant art project, "The Predator," which fuses traditional painting techniques with computer-generated, three-dimensional architectural renderings. "The Predator" is a 30-foot long, 10-foot high, room-sized installation that looks like an enormous wormy organism coiled at UC Irvine's University Art Gallery. It opens today.

Ever wonder what's beyond your backyard, why it's easy to get lost in Irvine, why there aren't more sidewalk cafes and coffee shops, what's the county's major industry, why there is no central downtown district? "These are some of the great mysteries of Orange County," said Beall Center director Jeanie Weiffenbach, who posed the queries and commissioned the Center for Land Use Interpretation (CLUI), a year ago to present a visual key to unlock the answers.

This is one way to tell the story of artist Theresa Hak Kyung Cha: She was born in Korea, raised and educated in California, and died tragically, murdered in New York City, at the age of 31. But there is another way to tell it as well: Cha was a prolific and talented Conceptual artist, ahead of the curve, and even though her life and her career were cut short, she created a body of work that continues to grow in impact and resonance.
