Creal Microgallery presents "Portable Disaster Proof House: Take It With You!!!," a small-scale installation work by Tracey Snelling, echoing several other installations by the artist, that are concurrently on view in Ann Arbor. This installation pulls together pop cultural elements to create a "safe space" filled with tropical sunset wallpaper, movie posters, and Keanu Reeves. Snelling's installations often take on multiple scales at once-- existing in life size and miniature simultaneously. This exhibition conjures a space that is at once comforting and overwhelming, centering and disorienting.
Creal Microgallery is a breadbox-sized exhibition space on Creal Crescent in Ann Arbor, visible from the sidewalk and lit up most nights until 11pm.

Jackson has run the gamut from new wave rock ’n’ roll to jazz, jump blues, Latin dance music, and cabaret in the course of the musical odyssey that began in 1979 with the hit single “Is She Really Going Out with Him?” His diversity of styles—he’s even composed a Grammy-winning pop symphony—is one of the British-born singer’s strengths, as is the unusual blend of soulfulness and acerbic wit in his music. This tour, his first since 2019, features a full band as well as a solo set, and draws on both new material and songs, he says, “that haven’t been heard live in many years.” 8 p.m., Michigan Theater. Tickets $35–$125 in advance at ticketmaster.com and (if available) at the door). Mask and proof of vaccination (or negative Covid test within 72 hours) required. 662-0600.
