NORMAN, OK.- Christmas has come early to the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, but a new sculpture is as much a gift to visitors as it is to the museum. Through March 15, 2010, museum visitors get a rare chance to view “The Kiss” (“Le Baiser”), one of only five lifetime casts, on this scale, of the bronze statue by Auguste Rodin (1840-1917). On loan for a limited time from a private collector, the sculpture depicts the famous, forbidden embrace of historical figures Francesca da Rimini and Paolo Malatesta
