3. Stay Curious

Gallery Victor is turning their space into a modern Wunderkammer, not to be confused with a messy room.

4. Get the Led Out

5. Go Wild

Take a stroll through Winter in the WildWood, an immersive holiday experience at Otherworld Theatre, where a Faun seeks to find magic in a forest. Each performance differs depending on the audience, so prepare for anything from fairytale stories to magicians. Jan. 7-9.
