Culture Shock

Art for Food

Artists need not be starving, but they’re probably hungry. Eleven artists have pulled together a one-night-only show at 500 2nd Street Studios this Friday, Aug. 1, dedicated to feeding themselves and their families. The show, titled 1 Buck 2 Buck 3 Buck 4, features artwork all on sale for $10 or less. It's a simple equation: You need art for cheap, they need money real quick. Stop by between 5 to 9 p.m. to browse the goods and help the artists put food on their table.

Youthful Music

The Albuquerque Youth Symphony Orchestra Program (AYS) is coming up on 53 years in bringing orchestra music to students in grades 3 to 12 from all areas of the city. To celebrate, AYS is raising funds to buy a permanent base of operations, starting with a black-tie gala at the Embassy Suites Albuquerque Hotel and Conference Center (1000 Woodward NE) on Aug. 16. Tickets to the event—which include a silent auction, cocktails, dinner and dancing—are $125 per person, available by calling 875-1319 before Aug. 6. For more information about AYS, visit

For the Girls

For 36 years, Girls Inc. of Santa Fe has hosted a two-day-long arts and crafts show on the Santa Fe Plaza. The event benefits an organization dedicated to inspiring girls to be strong, smart and bold, and features the work of more than 250 fine artisans and craftspeople. Admission is free and the fair is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 2, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 3. For more details, visit
