Cultural highlights this month
July 3 Linda Alterwitz, Trifecta Gallery
“In these photographs,” the artist says of her exhibit, In-Sight, “I weave together images of the human body derived from repurposed medical imaging with images of landscapes, revealing ethereal figures in a raw and vulnerable state. The mind, wrestling with sadness, fear and hope, retreats to a safe refuge. Through these pieces, I hope to bring insight to the struggles and the resulting withdrawal of the inner mind.” Through July 27, reception July 3, trifectagallery.com
July 26, Boston and Cheap Trick, Hard Rock Hotel
You’re all, Boston and Cheap Trick are old dudes, dude, and we’re like, Yeah, but at least one of those bands can still bring the noise, and then, after a brief pause, we all spontaneously break out into, Mommy’s all right, daddy’s all right, they just seem a little weird … Might as well surrender. 8 p.m., $49.50 and up, hardrockhotel.com
July 8, Bob Miller book-signing, Clark County Library

Homeless Mammoths Art Square Theatre

One reviewer describes it thusly: “a hilarious satire on present-day academia and the current generation of college students, a playfully irreverent depiction of lesbian relationships, a profound meditation on selfishness, spirituality and mortality …” Aug. 13-24, Cockroach Theatre in Art Square, $25,
