Start your day with this year’s Oscar-nominated short films at Crest Theatre. Sure to make you laugh, cry, and feel an entire range of emotions within the span of a regular-length movie, this screening promises to showcase the best of the best.
The art of Roma Devanbu is both metaphorical and literal. Hands hold on or let go of objects, relationships, and ideas in her work; at the same time, objects are a part of a chronic, but mostly manageable, hoarding disorder for the artist. Axis Gallery explores the “hoarder’s dilemma” with Keep, Toss, Give Away, or Sell?
Maybe you want your art a little more interpretive? Give Cities in Color a try at the Arthouse Gallery. As the name suggests, the work of Jeffery Tover uses abstract colors to represents select cities — Sacramento, Berlin, Chicago, and Beijing to name a few.
After traveling around to a few cities, consider one more geographic-based stop for lunch at the hip and southern kitchen at South (the hot chicken sandwich and corn bread are my go-tos!).
Wind down your day at Pachamama’s Roastery where local acts will be playing their best tunes during Midtown Unplugged. Oh, and the Sacramento Natural Food Co-op will supply complementary treats in case you needs something to go with your coffee.
