Thursday: Memorial Union Gallery 

New York artist Samantha Fein is on showcase at the MU Gallery, selected as the space’s 2015 Rosenquist Artist in Residence. Fein’s humorous works evoke a certain playfulness and play off a unique isolation the globe trekker discovered during her first Fargo winter.

Admission to the gallery is free. Visit the exhibition between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. on the upper level of the Memorial Union.

Friday: NDSU Opera 

Get lost in the magical forest with the 25-plus characters of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” presented by NDSU Opera. The Shakespearean comic opera is packed with action, movement and some particularly challenging music.

Tickets are free for NDSU students and can be acquired at Reineke 107. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. at Festival Concert Hall.

Saturday: Theatre B 

Take advantage of Theatre B’s student discount and see “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” for $10. The downtown theater company is ending its 12th season, preparing for new plays and 2016’s ShakespeareFest next season.

Be in your seat by 7:30 p.m. and prepare for a farce tackling family tension and sibling rivalries. Theatre B is located at 716 Main Ave.

Sunday: Mother’s Day 

Celebrate the woman who birthed and/or raised you with a special day devoted to Mom.

Buy her some flowers, take her out to dinner – just do something. A card will not cut it.

Monday: Callie Schroer Recital 

Senior Callie Schroer last showed her face in Theatre NDSU’s “Lysistrata” production, and now the theater arts major has a spotlight all to herself at 7:30 p.m. Monday.

Her Beckwith Recital Hall concert will show off the mezzo-soprano’s skills and cap her years at NDSU.

Admission is free for students.

Tuesday: Bike Share Afternoon 

Hit the road with a B-cycle from NDSU’s BikeShare on Tuesday afternoon. The service is free and fun.

Make sure to return the two-wheeler before the half-hour mark. Those kind of fees rack up fast.

Wednesday: Cody Gerszewski Recital 

One of Theatre NDSU’s shining stars mounts the stage in a solo show at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Senior Cody Gerszewski presents his musical theater recital in Beckwith Recital Hall, marking the end of the theater arts major’s time at NDSU.

Gerszewski’s theater prowess is strong, with leading roles in NDSU shows like “9 to 5: The Musical,” “Sweeney Todd” and “Next to Normal.”

Admission is free for students.
