Choices are always a plus but often thin on the ground locally. Schedule conflicts can go with them but not this week since the Living History Drama, an arts council /Salinas Pueblo Missions collaboration will be the next day, Sunday April 15, 3pm at MAoB.
In addition to a Soil Presentation Workshop, April 13-15, in Santa Fe, New Mexico History list (highly recommended) on H-Net announces a history symposium this Saturday at UNM. "Where Does History Live: The Academy, Cultural Institutions, the Landscape and the Digital World," a symposium presented by The Center for the Southwest at the Interdisciplinary Film and Digital Media Studies Center at Mesa del Sol, April 14, 2012 from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
Were I less homebound (no, it is not a lifestyle choice!), the history symposium would be my personal choice despite long standing blog policy of promoting area events and activities. It would be remiss of me not to remind readers that Albuquerque beckons with a wealth of other choices most weekends. NM Tourism, It's Trip Weekly Alibi and Duke City Fix calendars are good places to start when you are looking for something to take you away but out of Calgon.
Now 100% virtual, Mountainair Poets & Writers Picnic, our own (mine really) locally produced and published poetry. writing and literature network (blog, Facebook page, Twitter) that the arts council (also local, but nevermore linked) strangely refuses to recognize (more about that later) is a good source for readings, slams and other poetry events.
Planning further ahead into late spring and summer, Diann Doan, Cibola Arts, recently sent a notice (posted to Mountainair Announcements) about upcoming Mountainair events. Separate, individual posts will follow, but in brief for May onward: a Cibola Arts birthday event in early May, a Joe Brazil retrospective mid June at MAoB, and the inevitable late August Sunflower Festival. See Joe J Brazil article in La Herencia, Vol 62 Summer 2009.
