If music's not your thing, both the Rockland Center For the Arts and the Edward Hopper House have art exhibits open to the public.

The Rockland Center For the Arts is presenting "Beautiful Nonsense," with art that tweaks our perception of ordinary objects, and "Kevin Paulsen: Winter Theorems,'" which celebrates Paulsen's ability to create art with simple tools and free form strokes.
