Casas’s interactive installation and exhibition asks viewers to reflect upon “the things we admit and the things we dare not say.” Religious icons, Aztec Gods, lovers, lace, fruit, alien spacecrafts, and the Alamo all accompany Casas in this Technicolor exploration of xenophobia, racism, bigotry, and homophobia. Free, 2pm, Bihl Haus Arts, 2803 Fredericksburg,
