Charlie Campbell's picks for what to do and see this week in the Miami Valley.

The Human Race Theatre now has AIRNESS...an air guitar competition. It's a comedy about competition, completion, and finding the “airness” inside yourself. It wraps up this weekend.

A book sale is at the Wilmington-Stroop Library featuring used books, movies, music, and audiobooks for children, teens, and adults. It's tomorrow… Saturday…. 9:30 to 5pm.

The Dayton Philharmonic travels back in time to Dayton during the 70s and 80s when our city emerged as the “World Capital of Funk.” Celebrate this era as symphony fuses with jazz, blues, and rock and we relive the history of music in our funky town. The concert is performed in partnership with The Funk Music Hall of Fame & Exhibition Center (aka “The Funk Center”) and in conjunction with the University of Dayton’s Funk Symposium. It’s at the Schuster on Saturday at 8pm.

At the Dayton Art Institute you can see some of our beloved artist and illustrator Norman Rockwell. He could tell a complete story and has long been celebrated for his humor and artistic skill. Other artists will help put Rockwell’s work in a broader art-historical context. This is now through February.

We all have heard about The Mustangs....AMERICA'S WILD HORSES. This is so ingrained in the American imagination: fierce, independence, unbridled freedom. From car ads to high school mascots the mustang is the enduring icon of America. But in modern times it has become entangled in controversy and bureaucracy and now its future is in question. This movie is one you can stream anytime....go to neonmovies.com and click on their virtual cinema.

On Saturday night you get an extra hour of sleep….
