Free First Thursday at the Tucson Museum of Art. Another first Thursday of the month means another evening full of live music, art making and gallery conversations at this local art museum. This month, explore the intersection of art and the environment by checking out Patricia Carr Morgan’s exhibit, Blue Tears. Morgan, an Arizona photographer, traveled far from home to capture images of ice and glaciers up in Greenland, near the top of the earth, and way down at the bottom in Antarctica. Her work captures ice in its stunning beauty as well as its awe-inspiring power, for its ability to carve through mountains. Don’t miss her performance at 6 p.m. 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7. Tucson Museum of Art and Historic Block, 140 N. Main Ave. Free. Details here.
Every Brilliant Thing. When you’re six years old and your mother is clinically depressed, there’s not much you can do. The protagonist in this award-winning play (which is described by The Guardian as “one of the funniest plays you’ll see about depression”) decides to do what she can by creating a list of all of the most brilliant things in life, the sort of things that make life worth livings. Construction cranes, for example. Or laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose. Claire Marie Mannle stars in a role rarely portrayed by a woman. Thursday, Feb. 7 through Sunday, Feb. 24. Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre at the Historic Y, 738 N. Fifth Ave. $15 to $28. Details here.
