Rodef Shalom Congregation, Oakland :: Now to November 26
Quantum Theater presents The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk (The Chagall Musical), directed and Choreographed by Gustavo Zajac with Music Direction by Douglas Levine. The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk (The Chagall Musical) is a remarkable Klezmer musical by Daniel Jamieson and Ian Ross based on the love story of artist Marc Chagall and his poet wife, Bella. Staged at Rodef Shalom congregation, the fantasy fairytale takes its name from the Lithuanian city in which Chagall was born in 1887 and for the relationship memorialized in countless of his paintings. On whimsical sets, Marc and Bella are the picture of romance, floating over a Russian village or the Eiffel Tower. Although they are often seen flying on canvases, in life they sloughed through some of the most devastating years of Jewish history, navigating pogroms, the Russian Revolution, and the Holocaust. The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk (The Chagall Musical) will be presented on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays at Rodef Shalom congregation at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Morewood Avenue in Oakland from now to November 26.

5472 Penn Avenue, Bloomfield-Garfield :: Now to December 21
Patterns can be found everywhere from nature to science, art, and more. A new exhibition at the Pittsburgh Glass Center called This is Becoming a Pattern is a collection of works by six innovative artists from around the world, who push patterns in new directions. Pattern techniques have been used for thousands of years, adorning some of the earliest known glass objects. Through technical and creative innovations, patterns in glass have continued to evolve with each new generation of maker. Each artist in the exhibition uses a combination of color, tone, composition, and texture in a contemporary exploration of a traditional theme.

This is Becoming a Pattern is on display now through December 21 at the Pittsburgh Glass Center, 5472 Penn Avenue in Bloomfield-Garfield. More information is available at

980 Liberty Avenue, Downtown :: Now to January 21, 2024
The August Wilson African American Cultural Center presents Onna-Bugeisha: Warriors of Light, featuring the captivating works of Canadian-born, Brooklyn-based artist Tim Okamura. This exhibition marks Okamura’s first major institutional solo exhibition and features a series of large-scale works, paintings, and installations. Tim Okamura imagines an alternate reality – a society that closely mirrors our own, which was once liberated and equitable, but is now experiencing a rapid descent into a state of oppression due to the rise in power of an authoritarian regime. It is under these conditions, in a shift towards a riotous dystopia, that an astounding development has occurred: the sudden appearance of a clandestine group of women warriors – freedom fighters guided by the Bushido, or Code of the Samurai – sworn to battle back the forces of persecution and injustice at all costs.

On display now through January 21 at the August Wilson African American Cultural Center, 980 Liberty Avenue, Downtown. For more information, please visit
