From the outside, the Muckenthaler Cultural Center is a slice of old Fullerton, looking down on Malvern Avenue from the middle of a carefully manicured expanse of green. Inside, though, the 66-year-old mansion is often home to some of the latest in contemporary art. Inspired by a building in the 1915 Exposition at San Diego's Balboa Park, the Italian Renaissance-style home (designed by architect Frank Benchley) was built in 1924 for Walter and Adella Muckenthaler.

Photographer Annie Leibovitz issued a statement Friday saying she is "glad" that her nude portrait of John Lennon is again part of the Muckenthaler Cultural Center's "Heroes, Heroines, Idols and Icons" show. But she added a cautionary note. "I fear this is not the last time this sort of censorship will be attempted," she said. "In the current political climate, people are running scared. What worries me is how much self-censorship there is.

The bar was pouring fruit punch instead of Chardonnay, and a juggling clown replaced the usual string quartet, but to the exhibiting artists, Sunday's opening reception at the Muckenthaler Cultural Center was truly intoxicating. The fun launched the 15th annual Florence Arnold Children's Art Festival, in which more than 400 Fullerton grade-schoolers see their art promoted from the family bulletin board to the stately Muckenthaler gallery.

It may well be Shakespeare's silliest play. "As You Like It" has as a minor plot a farfetched tale about a usurped dukedom and a disenfranchised younger brother. It is really only an excuse for comic shenanigans in the Forest of Arden in an Elizabethan version of "The Dating Game." Modern directors have a ball tacking even sillier concepts onto the play. A perfect example is Grove Theater Center's staging at Fullerton's Muckenthaler Cultural Center.
