FIGURATIVE: The Pasadena Museum of California Art currently has on exhibit "L.A. RAW: Abject Expressionism in Los Angeles 1945-1980, From Rico Lebrun to Paul McCarthy" until May 20. The exhibit features the work of post-war figurative artists whose work has been ignored in art history today. At 3 pm artists Judy Baca, Barbara T. Smith and James Strombotne will be talking with curator Michael Duncan. It costs $7 for admission into the museum, which is located at 490 East Union Street in Pasadena. For more information about the exhibit, check out this review or visit the museum's website.

FUTURE: Head to the Beverly Hills Playhouse to see "The Encyclopedia Show" is a live variety show that originally kicked off in Chicago. Here's how it works: every month a new topic is picked, and artists are given an assignment to present a creative take on a certain subtopic. This month the topic is "The Future" and one artist has the topic "The First Robot President." Featured artists include National Slam Poet Javon Johnson, Alex Kavutskiy and actress Ashley Platz. The show starts at 7pm, and tickets are $10 ($8 presale). The Beverly Hills Playhouse is located at 254 S. Robertson Blvd. For more information, visit The Encyclopedia Show Los Angeles website.

FUN: Today is the second day of the Brewery Art Walk. Walk around the Brewery, talk to the artists and check out their studios and lofts. Peruse the artwork, shop and have a bite to eat. It goes from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 2100 North Main Street, Unit A10.
