We’ve got good news and bad news for Parks and Rec fans. The good news is that Chris Traeger and Ann Perkins (played by Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones) will return to Pawnee for the show’s final season next year. The bad news is, they’ll only be back for a single episode. In an interview with TVLine.com, executive producer Mike Schur said, “We made a list of people that we needed to see back one more time.

As a release about the event explains, each of the jumpsuits contains “musings and observations– a response to today's content-heavy digital landscape, which provides an unrelenting flood of images and opinions.” The jumpsuit displays will be accompanied by paintings and a film that “uses the thoughts and expressions on the jumpsuits as a creative point of departure to build a broader conversation about language and context.” If you want to check it out, the exhibit kicks off on Dec. 3 and runs through the 14th ...
