  • In recognition of  events over the past 100 years of New Mexico statehood, the Museum of Spanish Colonial Arts will open an exhibit of furniture and tinwork created by the Civilian Conservation Corp participants on March 23.
    These men were stationed at the Bandelier National Monument, Frijoles Canyon Camp #815 from the years of 1933-1942.
    The museum is searching for the names of the men who created the furniture and tinwork during that time.  
    Many of those who made the furniture and tinwork at the camp continued to use those skills throughout their lifetime and passed them on to their family members.

  • Bring in the clowns! That was the initial thought when Los Alamos Little Theater’s production of “A Thousand Clowns” was announced.
    The image of Bozo taunting coulrophobic adults while holding balloons and sneering was conjured up. Or maybe that was a result of reading Stephen King’s “It.”
    At any rate, “A Thousand Clowns” has absolutely nothing to do with clowns, demonic or otherwise.
    Set in 1960s New York, Herb Gardner’s production, directed by Richard Klamann and produced by Gracie Cainelli is a sometimes sad, sometimes hysterical (but always entertaining) performance.
