Just an FYI Clas 300 with Dr. Soren is at the U of A and not PCC.
Thanks for this information as i really appreciate and enjoy going to art galleries. I like the one in San Francisco so i decided to write about it here Art Gallery Opening – An Art Diary Description of Eventful Experiences
If you collected everything in the TMA and put it in a pile it wouldn't equal the Rothko in the UAMA (and there are probably a half a dozen works there that you could substitute for the Rothko).
And as it says,
"Directors Kristen Nelson and T.C. Tolbert are incredibly inclusive, supporting writers of all ages and backgrounds—and they're some of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet!"
Met them. Love them.
They and their compatriots have created something of a magical, yet simple setting on Fourth Ave in this funky building. It's just about the writing, the writers and the readers, and the provision of a space to enjoy being any and all of those. Go and find out...

I want to include the Tucson Museum of Art in favourite museums list http://www.topworldimages.com/images_of_Mu…
There are hundreds of other Tucson murals online. A good place to start finding mural information is at http://TucsonMurals.org .
Great waste of money is what it is especially "Flying Books". Oh and what the hell does David Black's Sonora have to do with Sonora in the first place?! Chicano mural art and statues have much more meaning and craftsmanship than the crap these gringos produced. Take it down and stop wasting taxpayer money you idiots!
The Drawing Studio (TDS) is the best place to learn what you really need to pursue your own personal art interests. Fred Sanchez
How do you add a submission? This is unfair. The Drawing studio is for rich anglo's that do not know what art is. and the community college is the best we can do for a second option?? How embarrassing. where do you submit your opinion? Does the public;s opinion actually matter?
There are some great art galleries in Tucson! I was surprised when I moved here because I wouldn't have expected it to be so culturally diverse. I recently saw a photo gallery open and it was a blast! I'm looking forward to seeing an art gallery next!
The best Cow story ever produced in Tucson, maybe anywhere, is The Stockyard Story by Tucson Playwright, Tomas DeMoss. Produced by Studio Connections, Brian Hale and Timothy Hollis were the lead actors and were nothing short of brilliant. Timothy spent the entire hilarious performance in a cow suit and was Udderly Superb. This play should be brought back by popular demand. CALL Robert Encila and tell him to do this.
If you are interested in more Mexican-American art, I've heard Diego Kahlo out of Chicago is great. He has some beautiful images on his website, http://www.diegokahlo.com, and he regularly does shows in the Chicago area, I'm planning on checking him out when I am there next month.

Thank you for recognizing the diversity and talent of Studio Connections and DaVinci Players. This organization has worked diligently and with integrity to develop the well-rounded artistic skills of it actors and directors. Please change the name of the award to better suit the well-deserved accolades this organization has worked so hard to earn.
P.S. Sorry! My bad! I misspelled Da Vinci twice in my comment! This editorial stuff isn't easy, is it? Perhaps the author of the award meant to title it "Most Infectious Theatre Ensemble," rather than Most Incestuous! I could easily see that happening. At least that would be something we'd prefer to catch!
Thank you Tucson Weekly for all you seek to do for the Tucson community. As a patron of the arts and education I agree that the fine work of The de Vinci Players at Studio Connections is noteworthy and deserves the highest of praise, recognition and support. Yet, I am saddened that you have chosen to apply a title (Most Incestuous) to your award category that reflects not only bad judgement on the Weekly's part, but could potentially do harm to the many caring people that frequent and support the Studio and its mission.
The members of the de Vince Players & Studio Connections have labored long and carefully to foster an atmosphere that intentionally seeks to care for and nurture the talent of professional and amateur, young and older alike. In fact, that's one of the wonderful things about the Studio, its ability to create a really dynamic, exciting community that well reflects the rich diversity of our larger Tucson area and of the Arts.
So, thanks TW for also providing space for community review and suggestions. Now please, act upon it! Do consider your own mission and the reason you obviously gave this award- that Tucson Weekly also cares about such treasures and works hard to create the best Tucson possible. That's what's so troubling about this misnomered award title that you've applied to a body the Weekly is lifting up - you have not reflected well on the time-honored mission and work of your own organization and have done the Studio, Tucson, and yourselves a disservice! Please consider changing both the name of the award and perhaps your editorial process. Then keep doing the quality work we've grown to expect and depend upon from the Tucson Weekly.

Tucson Weekly is without a doubt a very good publication. The Best of Tucson awards certainly assist many to learn of the excellent opportunities that exist in Tucson. Having said that I believe the Weekly has done well by recognizing the incredible talent of Studio Connection in providing quality productions which involves actors with considerable experience and many who are just beginning to demonstrate their amazing talent. The performances evidence a dynamic of energy, creativity, and professionalism. But, TW, "incestuous"? How about "multigenerational"? Because that is part of the power of Studio Connections.
I'm really glad to see Studio Connections getting well-deserved recognition for their commitment to developing young leaders for the theater arts. However, I am concerned that the title of the award you gave them will cause more harm than good with regard to promoting their work and their ability to support youth in taking on a variety of leadership roles in their theater productions. Having the word "Incestuous" in the title of the award just isn't appropriate for a group working so wonderfully with young people. Can you think of another title for their award...like "Most Empowering Theater Ensemble", or ..... Thanks for your consideration of this suggestion, Ann Yellott
