Art show images: The images published with an article in Monday's Calendar section about Sandow Birk's "Depravities of War" exhibition at Cal State Long Beach were incorrectly credited. Birk's "Repercussion" was courtesy of the artist and University Art Museum, Cal State Long Beach. The image of Jacques Callot's "The Hospital" was from the collection of the UCLA Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts, Hammer Museum.

In a recent excellent review of the University Art Museum at UC Santa Barbara, Christopher Knight neglected to mention Marla C. Berns, the museum's art director, without whose incredible energetic effort the renovation would never have been possible ("Tradition Maintained, Altered," May 26). She not only oversaw each and every detail of the architecture, interior design, landscaping and myriad other important tasks that are necessary for a complete renovation, but also found time during her personal hours to meet with and woo prospective donors whose contributions were necessary to complete the extensive remodeling.

Sam Hall Kaplan's front-page article (June 30) on the boom in art museum construction covered very well one aspect of this amazing phenomenon--the image or public-relations value of these new structures. It seems a shame that we sometimes forget--or mention only in passing, as Kaplan does--that museums really have a primary function: to preserve for posterity works of art that represent either our highest or typical cultural achievements and to present these publicly in ways best designed to communicate these achievements.

If, as Matisse famously suggested, his art aspired to the condition of a good armchair, visually soothing and emotionally transcendent, photographer Candida Hofer's compares to those handsome and severe Rietveld chairs, all straight lines and smooth planes -- a gift to the eye, hell on the rest of the body. Hofer, born in 1944 in Eberswalde, Germany, is the subject of a survey exhibition at the University Art Museum at Cal State Long Beach.
