Art crawlers looking for a spine-chilling Final Friday exhibit this Halloween will find a psychedelic menagerie of creepy and odd insects at 232 Vertigo Gallery. The space on North Market Street – formerly known as the Shopkeepers Gallery – will host “Creeping Lovelies,” a new show by Alex Walker that focuses on insect anatomy, bright colors and weird interpretations of bugs that often induce screams and shivers.

Perhaps an overhead screen flashing the appropriate phrases – like subtitles – would help.
Magical fairytales, classic ballets, and a comedic satire are among the performances that the Wichita Grand Opera will offer in the new year. On Monday, the company announced the details of its 2015 season, which will begin next spring and run through early fall. That’s a bit later of a start than in recent years, but the programming remains diverse.
