If you haven’t already visited the Walters’ Treasures of Heaven: Saints, Relics, and Devotion in Medieval Europe and the BMA’s Seeing Now: Photography Since 1960 exhibitions, don't wait any longer—both shows close tomorrow. At the Walters, be sure to check out the binder of notes that museum-goers have written about the relics and keepsakes they’ve collected over the years. It’s surprisingly moving and revealing and will add another layer to your appreciation of the show. At the BMA, keep an eye peeled for one of the museum’s recent acquisitions—a piece by John Waters.
This evening at 7 pm, you can meet-and-greet the man himself—Waters will be signing copies of his book, Role Models—which has just been released in paperback—at Atomic Books.
Tomorrow, don’t miss what promises to be an amazing evening with Mike Formanek at the Windup Space. Presented by Bernard Lyons and Creative Differences as part of Windup Space’s Anniversary Celebration, it features Formanek’s amazing quartet (with Tim Berne, Gerald Cleaver, and Jacob Sachs) and a second set featuring the quartet augmented by the likes of Dave Ballou, John Dierker, Susan Alcorn, and others. Doors open at 6:30 pm.
At 1 pm, Daniel Mark Epstein reads from his excellent new bio, The Ballad of Bob Dylan, at the Ivy Bookshop. Look for a review in our June issue.
