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

Today the Field Museum hosts “Between the Buildings: Butterflies, Bees, and Urban Pollinator Conservation,” a different kind of talk about the birds and the bees. Geologists and conservationists Victoria A. Wojcik, Emily Minor, and Ralph Grundel discuss pollination challenges.

There was a magical period in history when the government’s priority was creating paid jobs for artists. Rare prints from the time of the Works Progress Administration are now on display at the DePaul Art Museum’s “Ink, Paper, Politics: WPA-Era Printmaking From the Needles Collection.”

Al Pacino played John Wojtowicz in the 70s flick Dog Day Afternoon, but there’s way more to the story of the bank-robbing gay rights advocate than the Sidney Lumet film suggests. Tonight you can check out The Dog, Allison Berg and Frank Keraudren’s doc about Wojtowicz’s storied and terribly sad life.
