Don't miss an exhibition that offers the ideal combination of art and music. PUBLICO (1308 Clay St., Over-the-Rhine) presents Music Show: Contemporary Art, Design & Music, their newest exhibition that combines artists' work featuring some aspect of music, such as instruments or performance. In addition, it offers a showcase of music show posters and fliers. The artists represent a range of experiences, including a professor, musician, writer, sound artist and illustrator, among many others -- all with an interest in music and complementary subjects and skilled in various artistic techniques like silkscreen and magazine illustration. Publico has pulled together these artists from all corners of the world, one from as far away as the Netherlands. So make sure you get to Publico for what promises to be this gallery's distinctive look at the art of music. Through Nov. 18.

Speaking of terrific combinations, SYN GALLERY (2157 Central Ave., Brighton) opens it's next exhibition, Redesigning Movies, in collaboration with its first film festival, both of which kick off Saturday. The exhibition features designers from across the country redesigning their favorite movies into posters, which will then be displayed throughout the gallery. Paired with the film festival -- featuring artistic and experimental films from around the world, including films from Germany, Spain and Hungary -- this event is bound to be a highlight of Syn Gallery's season.

Mini Reviews
Currently on view at the DESIGNSMITH GALLERY (1342 Main St.) is artist Neil Hartman's Baby Killers. While the name might raise eyebrows, the work does not; it's laden with rich, vibrant colors. As you pass by each work, it's hard not to whisper the word "bizarre." Each baby features bright red cherry lips, yet they're painted with different colored eyes that pierce you. Each baby is also equipped with different forms of weaponry ranging from spears to machine guns. Hartman's work, which is both unsettling and welcoming, has a unique flair. Continues through Nov. 11.
