Art Critics: Another Read of Kaufman and Kennicott

In case you missed their Sunday Arts stories, here are two reviews from dance critic Sarah Kaufman and art critic Philip Kennicott.

Kennicott traveled to Baltimore to look at “Lost and Found: The Secrets of Archimedes” at the Walters Art Museum. “It is an exhibition about ancient science and the drama of how thoughts from the 3rd century B.C. were transmitted from the mind of the great mathematician Archimedes to papyrus to sheepskin to digital files now available to anyone with access to the internet,” wrote Kennicott.

Kaufman sat back and reviewed the remake of the classic 1980s movie, “Footloose.” She found “on the plus side, diversity has arrived in Bomont, the film’s fictional town. Newly multicultural, it looks a good bit more realistic than the all-white, somewhat stagey setting of the original. And in keeping with the urban demographics, the dancing is tougher, rougher and all-out sexier.”
