Through Saturday, May 29. Last Summer at Bluefish Cove. Lil, trying to escape the stress of her illness heads to Bluefish Cove, where she meets Eva. Even though wires are crossed, Eva and Lil begin an unexpected friendship that fuels Lil's happiness and helps her cope with her impending illness.

This exhibition highlights 75 masterworks by many of the leading international ceramic artists of our day, offering a panoramic survey of the potential of clay as an expressive art form. The art objects on view range from functional ware for everyday use to more expressive sculptural forms. On display through September 5. Visit the Columbia Museum of Art for more information.
Friday, May 28-Sunday, May 30. Shakespeare in the Park - A Midsummer Nights Dream.
