Two Renaissance masterpieces are coming to the New Orleans Museum of Art. It will be only the third museum ever to display them together, and the second outside Italy.

A museum news release says Paolo Veronese (POW-loh veh-roh-NAY-zuh) painted "St. Jerome in the Wilderness" and "St. Agatha Visited in Prison by St. Peter" during 1566 and 1567 for a chapel on Murano, an island in the lagoon of Venice.

The Downtown Gallery Crawl is an opportunity to check out what local artists of all media are creating. The Downtown Arts Alliance is pulling together nine shows in galleries across the Twin Cities, with live music, food, and drink around every corner. The Crawl is entirely free to any patrons interested in what regional artists have to offer.
