Donna Castellanos collects and transforms everyday objects, which she calls "once loved things", into a bold hands-on exhibit. Visitors experience the museum galleries as if they were a home; each room includes worn and well-loved items that share a commonality, from repurposed encyclopedias to antique musical instruments. Both nostalgia and inclusion are strong motifs throughout the exhibition, as visitors are invited to add their own contributions.

The comic fantasy Monstrous Regiment is an adaptation of the best-selling 2003 Discworld novel, which premiered to great praise at Chicago’s Lifeline Theatre in 2014. The play is a wickedly funny look at the absurdities of war and the ambiguities of identity as our heroine, Polly Perks, must disguise herself as a young man to join the army in the search for her missing brother. In her quest, she soon discovers that she’s not alone in protecting a secret and that nothing in war is as it seems.
