Prison Zoo

Through Aug. 14

Folks with a love for art and Forensic Files will find this new exhibit of works by interdisciplinary artist Alix Lambert to be a compelling look at crime and humanity. But there's more than finger prints to this exhibit, which takes its title from a claymation piece that Lambert worked on with other Charlotte filmmakers. Two animals share a cell in the flick that's designed to capture the essence of prison life. Free admission
