Government centerClark County Government Center

Roadrunners: zippy, darty, a blur of motion! What if, artist Alisha Kerlin wondered after seeing a roadrunner doorstop at a swap meet, you turned them into heavy, immobile sculptures with overtones of Italian futurism? That’ll put some meep-meep in the Rotunda Gallery! Roadrunners that Won’t Run Far shows through July 25 in the Clark County Government Center, 500 S. Grand Central Parkway. Reception 6p, June 5

Comic con Las Vegas20 The Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con

Chelsea Handler13 Chelsea Handler

The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas

Sure, she has mad skillz on the teevee, with her successful E! shows Chelsea Lately and After Lately, and she can occupy the stage as a stand-up — but we love her for the comic sprezzatura of her classic book title, Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea. In other words, she’s a very funny human. 8p, $85 and up, thecosmopolitanlasvegas.com

 

28 Izel Ballet Folkorico

FolkloricoWinchester Cultural Center

No, it’s not Cinco de Mayo or Mexican Independence Day. But do you really need a heavily marketed cultural excuse to check out the lively, colorful dancing of Mexico? No, you do not. Here’s your chance to engage in some trans-border cultural understanding. 6:30p, $10-$12, 702-455-7340
