Artist Kelly Kleinschrodt made four oval-shaped soap bars out of breast milk, glycerin and castor oil and then centered them perfectly on slim acrylic plates. They're arranged in a grid on a chest-high wrap-around white shelf, which also holds all the other small objects in Carter & Citizen's “heroes” exhibition. Something about those soap bars' placement and their nearly transparent, pale yellow and amber surfaces makes them like precious gems. 2648 La Cienega Ave., Culver City; through Nov. 23.
