Sunday, January 22, 2017 | 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM   
Torrance Art Museum 3320 Civic Center Drive, Torrance, CA
Cardboard that ubiquitous material that surrounds us, linking our desires via the packaging of consumer goods, keeping them safe, quenching our thirst for things is a cheap and throwaway material rarely paid any attention. But some artists grasp the amazing malleability of it its strength, its ability to be transformed. These 13 artists find ways to play with the pulped wood to invent new narratives. From replicating realistically the objects around us, to exploring structures, to humorously delighting us, they reconstruct the basic elements into fantastical pulped fictions.
 
 
Sunday, January 22, 2017 | 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM   
TORRANCE THEATRE COMPANY 1316 CABRILLO AVE, TORRANCE
Canada's favorite playwright returns to the TTC this season with a quirky story, complete with romance, broken hearts and a shark attack. Investment banker James Bell gets stuck int he sleepy town of Kooshog Lake during their annual Fishing Derby, and he's one fish out of water! Laughter abounds throughout this wacky fish story to end all fish stories, but in true Norm Foster form, it is filled with real people and real heart!!
