Mall Rats

Forget heading to the mall for your next jewelry fix. Instead, check out some trinkets with meaning at this weekend's Spanish Market at the Heard Museum, where New Mexico-based artist Michelle Tapia shows off her culture-inspired designs.

Tapia is one of many artists to be featured at the festival, which will include displays of everything from pottery and furniture to printmaking and paintings. To keep you entertained while you browse, there will be mariachi and folkloric dance performances as well as food and book signings. In other words, a whole lot of divertido to keep you occupied.

Sat., Nov. 13, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sun., Nov. 14, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., 2010
