Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered.

Get your daily dose of culture at the Art Institute's new exhibition "Architecture to Scale: Stanley Tigerman and Zago Architecture." Post-modern artifacts ranging from building models to short films are on display, culminating in an artistic examination of what representation and scale mean to architecture.

Any time's a good time for pizza, especially tonight when Denver punk band Pizza Time performs at Logan Square's Township. The band's two Bandcamp albums offer a taste of their bilingual, kooky-yet-earnest songmanship. Mac Blackout Band, Flesh Panthers, and All Blood are also performing.

Revisit To Kill a Mockingbird with a lecture at Tribune Tower by Marja Mills, a Chicago journalist and author of the newly released book The Mockingbird Next Door: Life with Harper Lee. In 2004, Mills moved to Monroeville, Alabama, and lived next door to Lee for the next 18 months. She chronicles her experiences in this sleepy southern town, the inspiration for To Kill a Mockingbird's Maycomb, as well as her day-to-day interactions with Harper Lee and her sister Alice.
