Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art examines works at the crossroads of a certain time and a very specific place in the exhibition Macrocosm/Microcosm: Abstract Expressionism in the American Southwest. Featuring art by nearly 40 American painters and sculptors, the show includes more than 60 pieces of Abstract Expressionism created from inspiration from the landscapes of Arizona, Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico in post-World War II America.

The show closes on Jan. 4. For more, go to
