More than 100 of French artist Auguste Rodin's marble sculptures, resurrected from basement storage rooms and dusted off for the first time in nearly half a century, went on display Wednesday at the Rodin Museum in Paris. The exhibition, which runs through Aug. 31, includes the Rodin Museum's complete collection as well as 10 "fake Rodins" by a little-known French sculptor who had hoped to cash in on Rodin's growing fame.

Philadelphia's Rodin Museum this month is mounting a fresh exhibition of the late French master's works to mark its 75th anniversary. One highlight will be a 37-sheet, leather-bound sketchbook of pencil and charcoal drawings done by Auguste Rodin as a student around 1860. They include diverse studies of decorative figures, landscapes, street scenes and even animals, such as horses at the Boulevard Saint-Marcel market in Paris.

Rodin Museum reopens Philadelphia's Rodin Museum, a little jewel box of a building surrounded by formal gardens and showcasing the French artist's monumental sculptures, had by most accounts lost some of its luster in the 83 years since it was built. Now, for the first time since the museum opened in 1929, the public will get to see it as its architects intended. The Rodin Museum reopens Friday after a more than three-year, $9-million renovation that returned all its sculptures to their original locations inside and out, refurbished almost all of them and restored the grounds' formal French garden, fountain and reflecting pool.

More than 10,000 campgrounds dot the American landscape. But only at the state-run campground in this remote Lake Champlain town can you find a Rodin sculpture on public display just steps from campers pitching tents and grilling burgers. A bronze plaque created by Auguste Rodin a century ago will soon be returned to its place on the Champlain Memorial Lighthouse, slated to reopen this spring after a $2-million restoration project that included conserving the French sculptor's "La France."

PHILADELPHIA - Saturday the Barnes Foundation opens its new museum here on the busy Benjamin Franklin Parkway. With hundreds of Renoirs, C├ęzannes, Matisses and Picassos, it's just up the street from the Philadelphia Museum of Art, whose officials were instrumental in pulling strings to make it happen. Anticipation has been running high. Eight years ago a local judge granted permission for the incomparable art installation to relocate from its unique home out on the Main Line, available to anyone who wished to visit.

The man entered the Rodin Museum Wednesday and fired a shot to demonstrate the gun was real, police said.

After decades of disuse, the country home of Auguste Rodin recently opened to the public, and gives visitors a look at dozens of plaster sculptures that had been stashed in the basement since the artist's death in 1917. La Villa des Brillants, as the home is called, is in the quiet Paris suburb of Meudon, where the sculptor spent his final years, overseeing his vast studio and 50 apprentices like a factory foreman. On display are hands, heads, fingers, arms, legs, torsos and complete figures.

A planned Philadelphia-based museum dedicated to the playful sculptures and mobiles of native son Alexander Calder will not open. The 35,000-square-foot Tadao Ando-designed museum was to open along Ben Franklin Parkway, across from the Rodin Museum and near both the Philadelphia Museum of Art and a proposed site for the Barnes Foundation's Impressionists-heavy art collection.
