Fall Arts & Entertainment Preview: Museums
Nov. 23-Mar. 16, Akron Art Museum, akronartmuseum.org
Artists use various forms of media — from wood to metal to printing presses — to replicate multiple copies of an image in these prints drawn from the Smithsonian American Art Museum. This distinctive art form allows artists such as David Hockney, whose lithograph Views of Hotel Well III (pictured) is one of more than 80 prints in the exhibit, the ability to express their vision over and over.
Traitor: Spies, Lies and Justice Denied — The Dreyfus Affair
Oct. 8-early January, Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage, maltzmuseum.org

Relive his trial through newspaper clippings and caricatures that were posted throughout France in 1894. In addition, read the personal diary he kept while wrongfully imprisoned on Devil's Island.
Nature's Mating Games: Beyond the Birds & the Bees
Oct. 26-Apr. 27, Cleveland Museum of Natural History, cmnh.org
