"Will you still love me when I'm 88?" Face to face with Rachel Lachowicz's three mask-like versions of herself--at 28 (her current age), 58 and 88--a viewer muses on the changing way the world views a woman as she ages, and on the mythology of makeup in our culture. Somewhat unnervingly, these plaster faces--metamorphosing from taut-skinned expressionlessness to a lined and pouchy scowl--all are covered with the same tint, from the Chanel "poudre douce" line.

Is "Hubby Part IV: Portrait of a Community" a scrapbook of the Chinatown art scene -- or a fashion show? Given that Bettina Hubby is an artist and a designer whose work is about abandoning convention, it makes sense that it's actually both. Her L.A. Fashion Week debut tonight will be less runway show than collaborative exhibition of about 30 portraits in the Mountain Bar's upstairs gallery space.

Skip Arnold has turned himself into a hood ornament on an 18-wheeler in Sun Valley and a nude gargoyle on the facade of Otis School of Art and Design in Los Angeles. He once had himself shipped in a crate from Linz, Austria--where he was on display in a glass case at a public art gallery--to Cologne, Germany, a 14-hour trip by truck. In Basel, Switzerland, he taped his (nude, of course) body six inches off the ground in a glass entryway, where he remained for 7 1/2 hours a day.

"Empty your purse and start a new life!" "Lay on the ground as if you fell from a tree!" "Go home and make love! Now!" Bright yellow signs scattered around Vienna's central Karlsplatz square urge passersby to do everything from eating pineapple to starting smiling chains. It's bizarre, to be sure, but it's all in the name of art. The signs, which have prompted plenty of double takes from Viennese and visitors alike, are part of an exhibit by the nearby Kunsthalle Wien.

Watch these spaces. Until Election Day, in-your-face billboards will try to get out your vote. Artists from guerrilla-poster boy Robbie Conal to the students of Griffin Avenue Elementary School are putting their messages on Gannett Outdoor's medium--eight or nine donated billboards: From performance artist Skip Arnold, an aimed gun with the words, "You don't vote . . . I WIN."

So let's recap. The governor of South Carolina disappears and is thought to be hiking in the Appalachians. On Naked Hiking Day, no less. He turns up at the Atlanta airport and later admits spending the previous several days crying in Buenos Aires with a woman not his wife. That followed close on the heels of the admission from a U.S. senator from Nevada that he'd had an affair with a campaign worker married to one of his aides.

Six women police officers -- at least they looked like police officers, except for the bad wigs and a pair of leather pants -- formed a phalanx in Chinatown's Central Plaza, pointing bullhorns and nightsticks. Gray balloons tricked up to look like a police helicopter hovered above them. "I'd like to see some I.D. please," one of them demanded of an unassuming man in a heavy coat, crowding him with enormous flashlights while another pointed a video camera.
