With May finally delivering the flowers that the old adage promises, you won't want to stay inside this week. Good news: When you're out and about enjoying the greening landscape, you won't need to drop a lot of green. From a booksigning with the former drummer for The Doors to a French artist's first-ever U.S. show to the opening of an exhibit devoted to Dr. Martin Luther King, it's all here -- and it's all free.
