Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered.

"Geometric," a one-day exhibit at Room 1520, features collaborative work between interdisciplinary artists and florists.

The ninth annual Black Playwrights Festival kicks off tonight at the Black Ensemble Theater. The Black Playwrights Initiative presents new works by Leonard Maceo Ferris, M. Shelly Conner, Wendell Etherly, Ervin Gardner, and Daryl Brooks.

Check out Chinese lute player Wu Man tonight at Northwestern University's Pick-Staiger Concert Hall. In Soundboard Peter Margasak writes that she is a "virtuoso of the traditional Chinese lute known as the pipa, and she's mastered its vast, ancient repertoire with grace, empathy, and an unerring ear for pitch and melody."
