Welcome to the Morning Buzz, a catch-up on interesting happenings around the city and country and a quick guide to what (and who) to keep your eyes on. We'll be here, first thing every weekday, to get you going. Here's what's buzzing this morning:
ASU Art Museum
's Social Studies series continues with new work from Julianne Swartz and Ken Landauer
, titled Miracle Report
. Throughout their exhibition, the two artists plan to interview community members and create installations that reflect "some beauty, some hocus-pocus and some unexplainable magic." Anyone who would like participate or share a story can email the museum's Nicole Herden at Nicole.firstname.lastname@example.org. The exhibition opens January 21, with an opening reception Jan. 20 from 5 to 7 p.m.
2. For Rent:
Two commercial spaces are available at Seventh and McKinley Streets (near Space 55 Theatre). For more information, call (602) 435-6531 or (602) 486-8808.
3. Being Elmo:
Kevin Clash always dreamed of being on Sesame Street, and, armed with a puppet he designed called Elmo, stopped at nothing for an audition. Being Elmo is the story of a "puppeteer's journey" that traces Clash's character back to his own childhood. Being Elmo comes to FilmBar
on January 24 and 31. Check out the new trailer below:
