The Falcon Presents: 4th Annual Zombie Art Show
The Falcon’s indefatigable procession of themed group shows continues with their fourth Zombie Art Show, a collection of works inspired by those who walk after death and crave brains. These exhibitions-slash-parties can be a mixed bag (pretty much by definition), and it’s hard to predict what you’ll get this time, but we’re quite taken with the early images from this year’s show that we’ve seen so far – in particular, Plinio Pinto’s series of bloody undead redheads. 8 pm Saturday; The Falcon, 819 E. Washington St.; free; 407-423-3060; thefalconbar.com.
