Works by Picasso, Serra, Rodin, Giacometti and a host of others will impress even the pickiest of art connoisseurs. Feb. 6 (and every first Saturday). Nasher Sculpture Center. Free.

6. Calling all Ira Glass groupies — if listening to “This American Life,” or obsessively waiting for the next “Serial” episode has whetted your appetite for storytelling, or you simply want to rekindle the art that won Homer his fame, enjoy the Truth & Daring Story Slam where visitors can tell any story remotely related to the theme, “Second Chances.” Feb. 4. Opening Bell Coffee. Free.
