Don't feel bad if you haven't the faintest idea what you're looking at when you first walk into "Uncommon Sense." This three-ring circus of an exhibition, opening today at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, includes a rodeo arena replete with prancing horse, 600 tons of ground glass, a replica of a set from the television series "Melrose Place," an MTA bus, a shotgun-style house and a live nude model. Needless to say, some time and attention are demanded to grasp the deeper meanings of all this.

Let's play a quick word association game. I say "Houston," and you say, "(Fill in the blank). " You probably did not answer "quirky. " "Astrodome," maybe, or "humid," or "We've got a problem. " All solid, serious words that evoke the opposite of quirk. But there's probably more quirk than you'd think. America's fourth-largest city (population 2.2 million) may not be a Berkeley, Austin or ? pardon me, ? L.A., but Houston has a passel of offbeat art sites. They're also off-the-beaten-path art sites (Houston's sprawl can make L.A. feel like Manhattan)

When National Endowment for the Arts chief Rocco Landesman flew to L.A. in February, he visited Watts House Project, the nonprofit group that artist Edgar Arceneaux founded to remodel homes on the block across from the Watts Towers. Landesman walked away impressed. "You see just how aesthetically these houses have been transformed to create a whole different mood in the neighborhood -- a mood of joy and hope in what had been a very run-down and challenged neighborhood," he wrote on an NEA blog.

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the Frick Collection, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Phillips Collection, the Norton Simon Museum. In the public consciousness, the passage of time has all but obliterated the particular personalities, passions and biases of the art-loving patrons whose names these museums carry, leaving behind institutions whose characters are now determined by bureaucratic teams of senior staff and boards of trustees.
