From the press release:

Photography comes into view at this snap-happy celebration. See the MIA’s renowned collection of amazing photographs. Strut your stuff to local faves Cadillac Kolstad and the Flats. And watch John Waters’s good-natured, bad-taste comedy Pecker, a film about a shutterbug who spreads his wings. Say cheese!

Celebrate the exhibition Masterpiece Photographs from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts: The Curatorial Legacy of Carroll T. Hartwell, on view in Harrison Photography Gallery, through February 25.

• Film: Pecker, 7 p.m. in Pillsbury Auditorium. Director John Waters, the originator of good-natured, bad-taste comedy, returns to his native Baltimore for this comedy about outrageous fortune.

But when the trendy New York art world discovers his pictures of his bizarre family members, Pecker becomes a celebrity. Christina Ricci, Lili Taylor, Martha Plimpton, and Mary Kay Place star. (Directed by John Waters, 1998, 86 min., 16mm, color).

• Music: local favorites Cadillac Kolstad and the Flats, 6:30 p.m. in ArtsBreak Café, cash bar.
