Ken Price exhibit
See the colorful and shapely works of contemporary sculpture by the late ceramic artist Ken Price on opening day of the retrospective exhibit at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, on view through May 12. Then grab a set of earphones and look for the Moonbird symbols in the permanent collection for family-friendly stops on the audio tour. Admission is $10 adults and free for ages 12 and younger.
If you have an old superhero costume from Halloween laying around, here’s an opportunity to don it again. Join the kids costume contest at the Sci-Fi Expo, at the Irving Convention Center February 9 and 10. You’ll see other sci-fi fans there to show off their own costume and meet actors like Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson from the Back to the Future series (they’ll be signing autographs and posing for photos with a replica DeLorean); Billy Boyd, who played the hobbit Pippin from The Lord of the Rings trilogy; actor, director, author and ‘80s heart throb Andrew McCarthy; and Kevin Sorbo from the live action series Hercules.
Tickets are $25 on Saturday and $20 on Sunday, and $5 kids ages 5–12 with a paying adult. 11am–7pm Saturday and 11am–5pm Sunday.
