Tomorrow is today. Information is instant, entertainment comes packaged on demand, and humans live in outer space. Of course, even in the face of progress, humankind retains its less-than-noble barbarism. Exploring this dichotomy, the Lawrence Corporation for the Advancement of the Visual Arts presents Signs of the New Apocalypse or Glimmers of a DIY Utopia?
at the Percolator in downtown Lawrence (411 East Ninth Street). Curated by Dave Loewenstein and Heidi Zeller, the exhibit asks artists to judge whether the world has become a better place with technological and social change. Works on display span visual art, music, performance and even food. The free, all-ages exhibition opens at 7 p.m. and continues Sundays through January 11.

Sat., Dec. 6, 7 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 12-6 p.m. Starts: Dec. 6. Continues through Jan. 11, 2008
