The Hebrew expression tikun olam translates to something like "repairing the world" and is usually heard relative to social causes. Pikes Peak Community College curator Laura Ben-Amots adopted it as the title of this month's art exhibit, subtitled Conflict & Harmony. In the show, whose reception runs from 5 to 8 tonight and which hangs through April 16 in the Downtown Studio Art Gallery (100 W. Pikes Peak Ave., 502-4040), local and international print, photography and sculpture artists have offered works that examine humans' relationship to the environment. Attend this evening for a special one-night organic maze installation by De Lane Bredvik, with which local dancers will interact at 6:10 and 7:15. Its deconstruction will send you home with seeds for your garden. — Matthew Schniper
