Artist JoAnn DePolo takes contemporary art to a whole new level with her new exhibition Restored, a unique collection of sculptures made entirely from outdated computer parts. See how DePolo deconstructs technological devices of the past only to give them new life and meaning by rebuilding them into interactive pieces, such as fully functional laser scanners and desk clocks. In addition to her computer sculptures, the exhibit features some of DePolo's stunning paintings, jewelry, glassware and photography. An opening reception for Restored takes place tonight from 7 to 9 p.m at JoAnn DePolo Studios & Gallery in North Olmsted. Can't make it to tonight's free event?

Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure screens tonight at the Capitol Theatre as part of the Melt Bar and Grilled Late Shift Series. It’s a fitting selection for the cult-classics line-up, one which features George Carlin as Rufus, an emissary from the future, tasked with making sure two valley dudes pass a history exam so they can later imbue the future’s culture with the music and wisdom of their garage band. Time travel and ludicrous 1980s special effects are worth the $5 ticket price alone, as is Keanu Reeves’ voice and Keanu Reeves’ haircut. To top it all off, Cleveland Cinemas is offering most excellent prizes for the best historical costume in the audience. Dust off those Halloween wigs and waistcoats and have yourself a hilarious sci-fi night at the movies. The film shows at midnight. (Allard)

Ohio-born singer-songwriter John Legend had the kind of upbringing that naturally lent itself to a career in music. He sang with his church choir while still a kid and then gravitated to hip-hop and R&B as he got older. His 2004 debut Get Lifted is a terrific, old-school soul album that alternates between romantic ballads ("Let's Gift Lifted") and modernized R&B ("I Can Change"). While the production relies a little too heavily on synthesizers and string arrangements, his new album, Love in the Future, mines similar territory. He performs tonight at 8 p.m. at the State Theater. Tickets are $38.50-$86. (Niesel)
The Girls in the Band tells the poignant, untold stories of female jazz and big band instrumentalists and their fascinating, groundbreaking journeys from the late 30′s to the present day.

Today's event kicks off at 1:30 p.m. at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Tickets are $9.
