    The People's Gallery

    You want a true reflection of the creative goodness that goes on in this town, citizen? As far as the visual arts are concerned, City Hall's People's Gallery nails it to the wall (in a manner of speaking) with another amazing collection of local work – more than 100 new pieces on display – from a panoply of masters and emerging artists alike. And we reckon Friday's opening reception will be sufficiently delightful to even be worth the hassle of finding a parking space – now that's a recommendation!
    Reception: Fri., Feb. 23, 6-9pm

    Your Playable City: Shadowing

    Here's a fun new Downtown installation, created by Jonathan Chomko and Matthew Rosier, in which streetlights play back the shadows of those who pass beneath them. No, for real. As a citizen walks under the lights, "the shadow of a previous visitor will walk, hop, or dance beside them, and then their own movements will be captured and displayed to the next passerby." And here's a map of locations.
    Through March 18

    ICOSA: Residual

    In which Katy Horan and Teruko Nimura interpret the concept of hauntings, from unresolved personal and societal experiences that resonate in our present day to variations on the traditional ghosts and spirits found in superstition and folklore. Nimura's fine work is relatively new to us, but that Horan has been thrilling us with weird beauty for years now – and we can hardly wait to scope this new show.
