A New Light

I’m not supposed to wake dancer Francis Lawrence from his nap.

A satirical painter of scathing political art, UA art prof Quiroz has already skewered American commanders-in-chief from George Washington to Barack Obama. His neon-colored cartoon caricatures of the nation's leaders are in the Presidential Series, an exhibition now in its last days at the University of Arizona Museum of Art.

Myths, Questions and Lessons

Theaters, like most every other entity, work hard to create their brand.
