Masterworks in Haitian Art: The Davenport Museum in Iowa possesses this country's largest public collection of Haitian art. Works by well-known artists such as Hector Hyppolite, Wilson Bigaud, iron sculptors Gabriel Bien-Aime and Serge Jolimeau, and Miami's own Edouard Duval-Carrie elucidate the island's history and the artists' affinity with the Vodou religion. Seventy works from the collection are on exhibit at the University of Miami's Lowe Art Museum (1301 Stanford Dr., Coral Gables), where Yale University professor Robert Farris Thompson will give a lecture on Vodou art tonight at 8:00 p.m. Admission to tonight's lecture is ten dollars. (Reservations are required; call 284-6981 for more information.) The exhibition is on view through March 30. Museum admission is five dollars. Museum hours are 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, except Thursday, when hours are noon to 7:00 p.m., and noon to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday. Call 284-3603. (JC)

Tartuffe: Moliere's stylishly biting satire of religious hypocrisy in Paris in the 1660s opens tonight at 8:00 p.m. at the University of Miami's Jerry Herman Ring Theatre (1380 Miller Dr., Coral Gables). Here's a quick synopsis for those of you who didn't read this in high school (or can't remember high school): Con man Tartuffe insinuates himself into the Paris home of the wealthy Orgon, where he turns around and tries to marry his daughter, seduce his wife, and swindle the deed to his property. The fun here is in the language -- Pulitzer Prize-winning Moliere translator Richard Wilbur manages to retain the scathing brilliance and rhythmic rhyming of the French original. Tickets cost $12 and $15. Performances continue through February 15, then February 18 to February 22 at 8:00, with a 2:00 p.m. matinee on February 15 and February 22. Call 284-3355. (
