The event is at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St. Tickets are $22. Go to openspacetrust.org.

Art: 'Bathtubs, Bathtubs Everywhere'

Art expresses political and environmental views in "Bathtubs, Bathtubs Everywhere," a show of paintings by Harry Cohen and Michael Killen now at Cafe Borrone, 1010 El Camino Real, Menlo Park. In the show, which runs through May 27, the artists express their concerns on canvas about a plan to develop salt ponds in Redwood City. The two state that they want the ponds restored to wetlands.
