In the first museum retrospective of his visual art, about 700 objects displayed throughout the Jones Center reveal Mothersbaugh’s surreal vision and personal expression through drawings, films, paintings, sculpture and music.

Details: 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. Sunday through April 17. Jones Center, 700 Congress Ave. $3-$5 (free on Tuesdays). thecontemporaryaustin.org.
