Milta Ortiz will perform a live excerpt from her docu-theater script "Más," based on the banning of Mexican- American studies in the Tucson Unified School District; David Sherman's documentary film "Son Blues," explores the music and emerging consciousness of a young Tucson musician; Catherine Eyde explores the evolution of her paintings and drawings when she invited her 8-year-old daughter Aria into her art; Ben Johnson explores the ancient practice of honeybee domestication and the bond between humans and bees in an interdisciplinary work; Shloka Mangharam Ettna shares new illustrations from her mixed media children's book "Amalla Dreamypants Learns to Fly"; Adan Banuelos discusses his kinetic sculpture inspired by low-rider car culture; and based on news reports of the murders of 85 transgender people in recent years, TC Tolbert creates a series of erasure poems that examine the relationship between violence against trans people and the language used to represent them in the media.
