Other JAN. 8 Art Start: “Roxaboxen” by Alice McLerran, illustrated by Barbara Cooney, free, 1 p.m., Swope Art Museum, 25 S. Seventh St. Marian called it Roxaboxen. There across the road, it looked like any rocky hill — nothing but sand and rocks, some old wooden boxes, cactus and greasewood and thorny ocotillo — but it was a special place: a sparkling world of jeweled homes, streets edged with the whitest stones and two ice cream shops. Come with us there, where all you need to gallop fast and free is a long stick and a soaring imagi- nation. For more information, visit swope.org or call 812-238-1676.
