Indeed, for those in need of some electro-art therapy, an exhibition of 200 paintings by Chia plus seven bronze statues is at the Boca Raton Museum of Art (501 Plaza Real, Boca) until January 13. The title of the showing, God and Heroes, underlines Chias artistic temperament. Hes the transfigurehead, so to speak, of the Transvanguardia movement in Italy, which committed itself to the heroic, mythical, and grandly metaphorical leitmotifs of pre-modern art though not to the exclusion of barnyard proctology. Admission costs $8-20. Call 561-392-2500, or visit www.bocamuseum.org.
