Visual arts notes: Impressive body of work at The Leonardo
Resurrection?     After all that has already been said about The Leonardo's funding - with more, of course, to come - let's hope that the doors really do open Sept. 19 to the Body Worlds 3 exhibit expected to draw attention to the fledgling science, technology and art center.
