Print show museum Ruble piece.jpg

This image is part of “Asleep in Italy” by Ron Ruble. The artist donated the works and curated the print show on display through Jan. 16 at the Kenosha Public Museum.

Escape the cold (and honor a former Kenoshan) by visiting the Kenosha Public Museum today. In August, the museum named its South Gallery, which primarily houses temporary fine art exhibits, the Ronald L. and Mary K. Ruble Gallery in honor of Ruble, a self-taught artist. As a young boy, he first became interested in art at the museum. Decades later, he donated his extensive print collection to the museum. An exhibit, open through Jan. 16, showcases prints by Ruble and other artists. Ruble, who died Jan. 2 at age 85, was thrilled to attend the opening of the exhibit in August. The museum, 5500 First Ave., is open 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. Admission is free. 262-653-4141 or https://museums.kenosha.org

Staying home today? You can find a new Museum Munchkins video, starring “Mr. Nick,” on the Kenosha Public Museum’s Facebook page. New programs are loaded every Wednesday.

If you don’t mind the cold, head out to a local hill for some sledding action. Popular sledding spots include Washington Park, 1821 Washington Road; a wide, sloping hill just north of St. Peter Catholic Church, off of 30th Avenue at 21st Street; Alford Park, 2901 Alford Drive; and Fox River Park, at the intersection of highways F and W in Silver Lake. Probably the most popular sledding hill is in Petrifying Springs Park, 4909 Seventh St. in Somers.

Tune in tonight: Kyra Sedgwick returns to series television in the sitcom “Call Your Mother.” She plays Jean, a lonely empty-nester mom whose children live thousands of miles away. Seeking a change, she decides her place is with her family and it’s time to reinsert herself into their lives. (8:30 p.m., ABC).
