ANN ARBOR – Here are some of the events happening in Ann Arbor on Tuesday about which we're most excited. Which ones do you plan to attend? What event should we cover in greater detail and why? Let us know in the comments below or email us at allaboutannarbor@wdiv.com.

Tuesday, Jan. 16

Red Circle Exhibition - In the 1980s, Japan’s strong trade surplus and currency were causing friction and antagonism overseas. In response, three renowned Japanese artists -- Ikko Tanaka, Shigeo Fukuda, and Kazumasa Nagai -- took on the challenge of changing Japan’s global image through graphic design. These dazzling posters are a fascinating chapter in the history of Japan’s ongoing efforts to shape its identity in the post-World War II era. (8 a.m., UMMA) 

Future Former: An Exhibition of Alumni Work - This exhibition honors the creative work and careers of all Stamps School alumni, creates an aspirational connection between generations of U-M artists and designers and current Stamps students, and inspires reflection during the university’s Bicentennial year. (9 a.m., University of Michigan Penny Stamps) 

Of 72: An exhibition by Ebony G. Patterson - Jamaican artist Ebony Patterson’s Of 72 -- a mixed media work on fabric, with digital imagery, embroidery, rhinestones, trimmings, bandanas and floral appliques -- considers the 2010 “Tivoli Incursion” in Kingston, Jamaica, an armed conflict between the Shower Posse drug cartel and Jamaica's military and police that began as security forces began searching for major drug lord Christopher "Dudus" Coke, after the United States requested his extradition. (9 a.m., U-M Institute for the Humanities)

Ann Arbor Restaurant Week - With more than 60 of the city's best restaurants participating in the semiannual event, restaurant week features lunch at a $15 special menu of Restaurant Week items, and dinner is a $28 fixed-price three-course menu. As an added bonus, Ann Arbor Restaurant Week has partnered with Taste the Local Difference and local farmers to incorporate as much Michigan produce as possible into the menus. (11 a.m., Various Locations) 

Food Literacy for All: Eric Holt-Gimenez - Food Literacy for All is a community-academic partnership course at the University of Michigan. Structured as an evening lecture series, Food Literacy for All features different guest speakers each week to address diverse challenges and opportunities of both domestic and global food systems. (6:30 p.m., Angell Hall - Aud B) 

Eastside weekly euchre tournament - Don't miss your chance to attend a fun and friendly euchre tournament. Do you think you have what it takes to outsmart the other team, or maybe even go it alone? Test your skills and show your fellow card players what you're made of. (7 p.m., Banfield's Bar & Grill East) 

Tuesday Tango - How does an Argentine tango class at Studio of Movement Arts, right above the People's Food Co-op, sound? No step is as easy as it looks, but mastering the steps is part of the fun. (9:30 p.m., Studio of Movement Arts)
