BOSTON — Contemporary Art fans can't go wrong: witness knitting bombers in action or eye some acupuncture photography at the deCordova. Theatergoers can choose from ballet, musicals, revivals and premiere performances. This Sunday afternoon, take in some Broadway love songs and keep that Valentine's Day mood around a little longer!

The deCordova Biennial
deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum
through April 22nd
Highlighting 23 artists from across New England, the exhibition showcases art in a variety of media — sculpture, painting, video, performance and striking photography — with no intended theme, but certainly a thread of artists addressing the economy.

"Simply Sublime"
Boston Ballet
at The Boston Opera House through February 19th
Florence Clerc’s world premiere staging of Michel Fokine’s Les Sylphides, Christopher Wheeldon’s Polyphonia, and George Balanchine’s Symphony in Three Movements.
The third of these performances alone is worth the effort. The company's James Whiteside is definitely coming into his own.
