Wed 23 – Some 30 years after Titian first painted the subject of Jesus’ burial, he returned to it with another painting of The Entombment of Christ, which displays the Venetian artist’s freer later style and features a depiction of Nicodemus that some believe is a disguised self-portrait of Titian. The latter painting usually hangs in the Museo del Prado, but it’s on loan to the Kimbell for the summer. The work shows thru Jun 12 at 3333 Camp Bowie Blvd, FW. Admission is free. Call 817-332-8451.

Fri 25 – The third annual Wildcatter Exchange goes on this weekend in the area south of downtown Fort Worth — we may have to come up with a name for that place if it gets much busier (the “Nearer Southside”?). The event boasts live music, author appearances, spoken-word performances, and a tribute to the multifarious careers of Michael H. Price. The festival runs Fri thru today at Landers Machine Shop, 207 E Broadway Av, FW and Shipping & Receiving Bar, 201 S Calhoun St, FW. Admission is free.

 

Sat 26 – Some folks on Facebook have gotten the idea that the Weekly’s One Pot Showdown is a chili cook-off. Competitors are certainly free to make chili, but we’re looking for anything that can be made in a single cooking vessel, so our contestants have the license to get creative. The Saint Arnold Brewing Company has held this event in Houston for nine years, but this year they’re bringing it to Fort Worth. The cooking starts at noon at the Abbey Pub, 2710 W 7th St, FW. Registration is $40-60, and there’s room for a few more teams. Call 817-321-9700.

Sun 27 – This year marks the 35th anniversary of Jubilee Theatre’s premiere of God’s Trombones, and the musical co-written by troupe founder Rudy Eastman based on James Weldon Johnson’s sermon poems hasn’t lost its ability to pack the house or blow the roof off the place. The play runs Fri thru Apr 24 at 506 Main St, FW. Tickets are $20-32. Call 817-338-4411.
