(Jim Dine/Published by Pace Editions Inc.)

An enormous wooden Pinocchio sculpture currently lords over the Trinity Gallery, looking like an anorexic, Italian, 19th-century answer to that goofball American chubster Big Boy. The Lost Boy is pop artist JIM DINE's response to the famous Italian tale of the homemade kid with the phallic nose. In prints, sculpture and hand-colored lithographs, Dine imagines Pinocchio in his various moods from mischievous to pensive, alluding perhaps to a story that originally came with a very dark ending. The works on view at Trinity today, NOV. 27, and through Dec. 8 came out of a fancy, two-pound, 2006 Steidl art book in which Dine's illustrations appear alongside the original Italian author Carlo Collodi's prose. Free. Tues.-Fri., 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sat., 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Trinity Gallery, 315 E. Paces Ferry Road. 404-237-0370. www.trinitygallery.com.
