October 30, 2015 | 8:00pm

Everyone needs a break, and struggling artist Dana Fielding finds herself in a mental hospital after suffering a breakdown following scathing reviews of her work. Realizing her prescribed ten-day-stay is not nearly long enough, she tries to convince hospital authorities that she thinks she is former baseball great Darryl Strawberry. In the process she makes discoveries that change her life and her art.

Tickets are $14.00 for adults, $12.00 for seniors, U.Va. faculty/staff and U.Va. Alumni Association members, and $8.00 for children and students. Full-time U.Va. students may receive one free ticket if reserved at least 24 hours in advance of their desired show date.

Ruffin Gallery

Theo Mullen | With Small Changes There is a slab of concrete that was once a factory floor. What remains are various bits of material used by local skaters as obstacles. What strikes me is the directness and simplicity in creating what seemed to me as formal sculptures full of movement and transition. Through a photography and sculpture installation I challenged myself to use the material within the reclaimed skate park to create a series of arrangements employing a similar aesthetic. The sculptures draw from the raw and archetypal material used in creating DIY skate parks.
