Art
Anthropology of Motherhood, a new exhibit at the Carlow University Art Gallery, explores the complexity of parenting and nurturing through a series of photos, sculptures, paintings, and other works that "address maternal identities with birth as a metaphor for regeneration, creation, and renewal." The exhibit is open to Carlow students and staff, and visitors by appointment. Continues through Jan., 29, 2021. 3333 Fifth Ave., Oakland. anthropologyofmotherhood.com

Vote!
After a seemingly eternal election year, the day to cast your vote is finally here. There's a good chance you've already voted by mail, but if not, make sure to get to the polls. Find out more about where and how to vote at votespa.com and check out our voting guide at pghcitypaper.com.

Wed., Nov. 4
Podcast
Catch 1Hood Media's weekly podcast, This Week in White Supremacy, which streams on Facebook. The podcast is aimed at listeners who want to "digest the day's events with humor and hip hop," and this week is the perfect time to tune in. Considering it will air the day after the election, the outcome (or lack thereof) will likely be a topic of discussion. 6 p.m. facebook.com/1HoodMedia
