Mondays-Sundays. Continues through March 31, 2018

Sidney Swidler’s work as a modern architect helped train his eye to pick up the essential elements of form, texture, glaze selection, craftsmanship, and artistic intent, which he used to collect nearly 1,000 piece of contemporary ceramic art. In 2010, he donated around 800 of those pieces to California’s Crocker Art Museum. Seven years later, he gave 100 pieces to the FIA, a gift that resulted in this exhibit.

Penny Stamps speaker series: Kiki Smith

Thu., Oct. 19, 5:10 p.m.

Born in West Germany, Kiki Smith’s family moved to America when she was just an infant and her east coast home shaped the artist she would become. She attended art school in Connecticut and later joined a radical art collective after moving to New York City in the ’70s. Her work is largely centered around sex, birth, and regeneration, but a large part of her career was also focused on AIDS — her sister Beatrice Smith died from the disease in the late ’80s. Smith will discuss her multidisciplinary work during this speaking engagement.

Begins at 5:10 p.m.; 603 E. Liberty St., Ann Arbor; stamps.umich.edu; 734-764-0397; free. Free

Imagine Dragons

Thu., Oct. 19, 7:30 p.m.

It didn’t take long for Las Vegas pop-rockers Imagine Dragons to reach the top. Only four years separated their conception and their smash hit “Radioactive” from debut record Night Visions (which managed to reach gold and platinum status in 22 countries). Their immediate success was not a cue to sit quiet, but rather to release two more records that have done nothing but dominate the airwaves. Having crafted a career on songs suited for an action movie scene where the protagonist realizes they have to do something about the impending robot attack/massive storm/intergalactic battle/what have you, it’s hard to imagine these Dragons are going anywhere but up.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m.; 2645 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-471-6611; olympiaentertainment.com; Tickets start at $49.50. $49.50
