We here at New Times are what youd call city folk: We dont like roughing it, we rarely wrassle pigs (tell that to my wife, bada bing!), and we couldnt spot a constellation if it had a neon sign glowing next to it. Yup, we prefer to do our contemplative star gazing in sanctioned places, like the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood (1650 Harrison St., Hollywood). In their Focus South Florida project room, the ACC houses indigenous wildlife of the artistic variety; now through May 11, lightbox artist Jay Oré will call the room home. Orés a Floridian whos not intimidated by the night sky his lightboxes act as expansive constellations, each interacting to tell a vibrant story. Like most good art, you might have to work a bit to discover the underlying messages. But dont worry: its more fun than trying to figure out Orions Belt. Admission costs $6. Call 954-921-3274, or visit www.artandculturecenter.org.
