From a Halloween-themed art and hobby show to an in-person debate about a 220-year-old-acquisition by the British Museum, as usual, art is everywhere

The Twin Ports Horror Society (When did the Twin Ports get a Horror Society and how can you join?) is holding an art and hobby bazaar Saturday from 2:30pm to 6:30pm at the Teatro Zuccone/Zeitgeist Building on Superior Street.

Annie Dugan has a new podcast series for you to investigate: it's called "Recording Artists" and it's produced by the Getty Research Institute. The first season focuses on "Radical Women" and is drawn from interviews with women artists of the '50s and '60s.

In 1801, a British ambassador, Lord Elgin, took down the face of the Parthenon in Greece and sold it to the British government. He did so, not with permission from Greece, but after negotiating with the Ottomans who were occupying Greece at the time.

Thursday, an in-person panel will convene in Boston to talk about what should happen to the "Elgin marbles," and you can attend virtually, if you wish.

In this debate-style event, Boston attorney Joseph Hern, former Governor of Massachusetts Michael Dukakis, and a panel of experts will argue against or for the return of the marbles to Greece. At the end, the audience will decide who had the
most compelling argument.
