There’s a lot going on Lewiston and Auburn these days. Here are five ideas:

 Bates College Museum of Art, Olin Arts Center, 75 Russell St., Lewiston; bates.edu/museum

It’s only on view through Saturday, so be sure to check out “Robert Indiana: Now and Then.” The exhibition of the Maine-based pop artist features more than 70 pieces, and the centerpiece is a series of new paintings that Indiana made based on the Bob Dylan song “Like a Rolling Stone.” Indiana incorporated Dylan’s words into a series of 12 new paintings that are mostly based on Indiana’s “The American Dream” series from the early 1960s. Indiana finished the last piece of the Dylan series six weeks before the exhibition opened in June, and this is the first time they’ve been shown publicly.

 Bates Mill, 35 Canal St., Lewiston; amystaceycurtis.com

Installation artist Amy Stacey Curtis continues her ninth and final “solo biennial” on the fifth floor of Bates Mill through Oct. 28. When this installation closes, Curtis will have designed, constructed and installed 81 audience-activated art pieces in nine mill spaces in eight Maine communities since 2000. This one, titled “Memory,” explores how and why we remember the things we do.

 Public Theatre, 31 Maple St., Lewiston; thepublictheatre.org

The professional theater company opens its season on Oct. 14 with the play “Last Gas” by Maine playwright John Cariani. The author of “Almost, Maine,” Cariani grew up in Presque Isle and now makes his living as an actor in New York. He also writes plays, and “Last Gas” is another in his continuing series about life in rural America. It’s about a Red Sox fan who manages the last store where you can get gas before the Canadian border. An old flame returns to town the same day his best friend offers him tickets to the Red Sox-Yankees game.

 Art Crawl, 7 p.m. Thursday, beginning at the Franco Center, 46 Cedar St., Lewiston

To coincide with the Maine International Conference on the Arts, LA Arts is putting together an evening Art Crawl, to take place after the Thursday night opening session. The Art Crawl will include the Maine Craft Association’s 2016 Craft Apprenticeship Program gallery showing at LA Arts from 4 to 7 p.m., with music from Somali and Sudanese musicians, and an art walk through Lewiston until 8 p.m.

 Museum L-A, Bates Mill Complex, 35 Canal St., Lewiston; museumla.org

Museum L-A, which is dedicated to the region’s history of work and industry, is showing the exhibition “Covering the Nation: The Art of the Bates Bedspread.” Guest curator Jacqueline Field assembled some of the best known and beautiful bedspreads made at the Bates Mill. Accompanying the bedspreads are display cases featuring advertising that was utilized to promote the Bates brand. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday.
