THEATER
Tyson to go a round at Fox

ARTS
The art of staying healthy
At a time when many Americans can’t afford health insurance, individual artists are particularly vulnerable. That’s the impetus behind an Arts Health Day program being offered for free from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Little Five Points Community Center. Presented by C4 Atlanta, Alternate Roots and WonderRoot, it will include a keynote talk by Jim Brown of the Actor’s Fund on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, panel discussions, yoga and tai chi demonstrations and a health fair. 1083 Austin Ave. N.E., Atlanta. www.c4atlanta.org/artshealthday.

VISUAL ART
Buy art, support Art Papers
Works by more than 250 local and national artists will go to the highest bidders at the Art Papers Art Auction, 7-10 p.m. Saturday at Mason Murer Fine Art. A fundraiser for the Atlanta-based arts journal, the auction is also one of the city’s biggest yearly art parties, with a DJ, food from metro restaurants and a cash bar. Tickets for the silent auction/party are $45 advance, $55 door. A Collector’s Preview, 7-9 p.m. Friday, $190 (includes a Saturday ticket), features the option to purchase select works, live jazz, hors d’oeuvres and open bar. 199 Armour Drive N.E. Atlanta. www.artpapers.org/auction. HOWARD POUSNER

CLASSICAL MUSIC
Ludwig Symphony gets romantic
Every female guest will receive a rose at the Ludwig Symphony Orchestra’s “A Beethoven Romance For Valentine’s Day” concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center.
