Ballet Tucson’s Youth Ballet group BT2 is performing this weekend at the Stevie Eller Dance Theatre on the UA campus. Shows are Saturday at 7pm and Sunday at 2pm and the program features several works and is a great way to see the next generation of dance stars up close in the intimate space. Tickets are $25 each.

At the Joseph Gross Gallery, located on the UA campus at Speedway and Park Avenue, an new show by artist Randy Slack is entitled Enjoy Yourself, It’s Closer than You Think. The Phoenix-based painter works in large-scale works that reference leisure and nostalgia. The show is up through August 25 and is free and open to the public.

At the Mini Time Machine Museum an exhibit entitled - Rudy Flores and Teresa Estrella: Cultural Army of Tucson is on display through August 27. This exhibit is the inaugural presentation in the museum's new Community Corner, a space dedicated to showcasing local artists working in miniature. The exhibit features more than 200 3D printed figures of Tucsonans, rendered in the style of green plastic toy soldiers by Tucson artists Rudy Flores and Teresa Estrella.
