The Last Picture Show

The Last Picture Show

Davis Dominguez, a long-running gallery of contemporary art and a respected venue that shows many local artists, will close its doors at the end of June.

 

Volatile Beauty

When Selena Littler was 9 years old, she was let loose in the high desert north of the Catalinas. It was 1968, the year of rebellion, and a bunch of Tucson artists, her father, Charles Littler, included, had decamped from the city to the desert.

Beaten and Busted

Rodriguez, also known as Dr. Cintli, is a professor at the University of Arizona’s Mexican American Studies department. He is an award-winning journalist, columnist and author. In 2014, he released Our Sacred Maiz Is Our Mother: Indigeneity and Belonging in the Americas, a book where he reports on the long history of corn and its relationship to Indigenous communities. That is where he first discovered the real meaning of Yolqui.

Twenty Good Reads

With the year drawing to a close, we asked authors Tom Zoellner, Margaret Regan and Brian Smith along with Tucson Weekly exectuive editor Jim Nintzel to round up their favorite local books of the year.

Holly, Jolly Art

There’s still time to wing your way to Etherton Gallery to see Expecting to Fly, a powerhouse exhibition of work by three photographers.

Food for Thought

Winding Road Theatre showcases ensemble talent and honest storytelling in their latest offering, Dan LeFranc’s The Big Meal.

Dances of the Season

Each December, thousands of dancers take to stages all over the country to dance The Nutcracker, the beloved Christmas tradition. Set to a splendid score by Tchaikovsky, the 1892 ballet was created in Russia by two choreographers, the French Petipa and the Russian Ivanov, and based on a story by a German, E.T.A. Hoffman.

Come and Hear the Music Play

Arizona Theatre Company brings an all-new production of Cabaret (written by Joe Masteroff with music and lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb) to Southern Arizona this winter. Set during the waning days of Weimar Berlin and the Nazis’ rise to power, Cabaret is a deliberately timed choice for ATC. Its warnings about noxious populism and apathy in the face of evil resonate strongly today.
