The first in a series of exhibitions celebrating the Weisman Art Museum's 20th year in its Frank Gehry-designed building, "WAM@20: Choice" highlights objects collected over the past two decades. The selection process, however, was nontraditional. WAM's tour guides made some of the choices, as did Lyndel King, the director opf the museum. Other objects made the cut for being the smallest or oldest works in the museum. Pieces on view include many untitled ceramics, a miniature book, Nina Katchadourian's Untitled (salt and pepper shakers), book-plate illustrations, and a paper, wood, and watercolor construction by Richard Francisco. A treasure trove indeed. There will be a related party, the Big WAM Bash, featuring cocktails, appetizers, live music, and dancing from 8 to 11:30 p.m. Saturday, October 5 (tickets are $75-$250).
