“The Office” Trivia
Worrying that we will not be able to meet our 8% quarterly sales growth, we have set out to present a trivia night focused on the award-winning American version of “The Office,” a mockumentary sitcom based around the mythical Dunder Mifflin Paper Company, and all of the crazy characters that work in the office. Trivia will be based on all (nine) seasons, with a mix of question formats. 7 p.m. Free. Valley Bar: 130 N. Central Ave. Phoenix AZ; Valleybarphx.com // @valleybarphx


Oscar Muñoz: Invisibilia
Oscar Muñoz: Invisibilia is the first mid-career survey of Colombian artist Oscar Muñoz’s work in the United States. Although he has had large-scale retrospectives throughout Europe and Latin America, this exhibition will introduce U.S. audiences to a broad scope of his evolving practice. The exhibition will include approximately 50 exemplary works from his most evocative series created during the late 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s to the present day, including site-specific work, to trace the evolution of his practice. 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. $23. Phoenix Art Museum: 1625 N Central Ave. Phoenix, AZ; phxart.org // @phxart 

What’s Good? Comedy
A monthly comedy show hosted by two dudes that people willingly keep giving microphones to, featuring local and touring comedians telling jokes at FilmBar! Anwar will probably offend you.

Altered Focus Exhibit Opening
Artists keep their inspiration flowing by trying new ways of looking at subject matter, new ways of using the materials they are familiar with, or using completely new materials — abandoning the comfort of remaining on any previously achieved plateau. In this exhibition, the Waterworks Artists have gone in new directions, without the constraint of having to paint in any single way, and with the freedom to try new subjects, styles and techniques. 6 p.m. Free. Herberger Theater Center: 222 East Monroe St. Phoenix, AZ; herbergertheater.org // @herbergertheater
