    Underground Comedy

    This basement venue is dedicated to "bringing the best in alternative comedy with shows seven nights a week." For instance: Monday starts things off with that sprightly revue of optimism called Fuck This Week, there's Rob Gagnon's unpredictable Sandbox on Tuesdays, the all-female comedy showcase called Garage on Wednesdays, check out Stephanie Thoreson's Fishbowl this Thursday, and don't miss the inarguable power of Sure Thing hosted by Duncan Carson and Brendan K. O’Grady that happens every Friday night. Also, Saturday's Sweet Lightning will strike your tender comedy center just right, and – check that website for more, yo!

    Wally Workman Gallery: You Should Smile, Darlin'

    In this new body of work, local pigment-wielding phenom Ian Shults focuses on the dynamic between the patriarchy and feminism, his figures idealized, revered, empowered, feared. It's a vivid, staggered exploration of our current culture – and the artist’s role as a white male figurative painter within it.

    Words/Matter: Latin American Art and Language

    Drawn primarily from the Blanton’s extensive collection of Latin American art, this exhibition offers an innovative perspective on how artists of the region have explored the links between visual art and written language since the early decades of the twentieth century, with examples ranging from Alejandro Xul Solar and Joaquín Torres-García’s creation of alphabets and metaphysical signs, to the visual experiments of Brazilian concrete poets in the 1960s, and the political codification of language by conceptualists since the 1970s.
