    MADRE HOUSE ON MCDOWELLPHOENIX ART MUSEUM CELEBRATES CONTRIBUTIONS OF LATIN AMERICAN WOMEN

    I remember one night in college, my classmate Carol and I were cramming for Dr. Deleuze's art history exam, smoking up a storm and bitching about the absence of women in our art history texts. One of the books was H.W. Janson's History of Art. I reme...

    QUASI-NO-NO

    DEAD BIRDIE

    Last summer, Davis Productions gave us the wonderfully polished, Broadway-quality Pirates of Penzance. This summer's offering, Bye, Bye Birdie, falls far short of last year's benchmark production. From sets that resemble three-year-old high school fl...

    JEWISH WRY

    Probably the best argument that can be made for continuing federal funding for the arts is to consider what kind of entertainment would proliferate if market demands become the sole influence on artistic repertoire. One measure by which we mig...

    OKIE DOKEY

    On March 31, 55 years ago, the golden age of the American musical was born. It is easy to imagine the shiver the audience must have experienced on that opening night, when the houselights went down and, without an overture, the curtain rose on a farm...

    MOM-AND-POP ART

    "When you photograph me, I feel everything leave me. The blood drains from my face, my eyelids droop, my thoughts disappear. I can feel my facial muscles go limp. All you have to do is to give me that one cue, 'Don't smile,' and zap. Nothing. That's ...

    BEREAVE IT OR NOT

    You don't build the City of Tomorrow in a day. In fact, not even in 25 years, as it turns out, but Paolo Soleri's vision of Arcosanti has not wavered since he first broke ground for his "urban laboratory" at the basalt cliffs near Cordes Junction in ...
