Today: Experience the creativity of award-winning performers. Many who are plugged into the local art scene recognize an endorsement from the Charlotte Street Foundation as a signifier of that an artist is getting legitimate. Tonight at 7:30, Charlotte Street Foundation Generative Performing Arts Award winners put on a free show at Johnson County Community College's Polsky Theater.
Tuesday: Hearken back to the good old days of radio. Chuck Haddix takes you back with the story of Coon Sanders Nighthawks Orchestra, an old timey big band that brought glory to Kansas City, during a 7 p.m. presentation at Shawnee Town.
Wednesday: Take in an elaborate, interactive exhibit at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, part of which you may be able to keep. Forever by Clare Twomey features 1,345 ceramic vessels that museum visitors may apply to keep.
Thursday: Witness beautiful murder. Kansas City Ballet's Slaughter on Tenth Avenue puts graceful dancers into a dark story set in a strip club.
