Culture Shock

Victims of strict Catholic educations can purge some of their residual pain by attending Vicki Quade and Maripat Donovan's Late Nite Catechism, a comedy that will run for 16 performances from March 2 through March 16 in UNM's Rodey Theatre. Even non-Catholics will probably appreciate this funny look at classroom authoritarianism. Beware the paddle. Tickets are $32. (800) 905-3315.

"Sahuaro Sunset" by Luis P. Olay

Luis P. Olay incorporates ancient Toltec and Aztec craft techniques into his fine straw mosaic art. He uses beeswax, insect, vegetable and chemical dyes, and wild straw to create portraits, landscapes, and traditional Mexican, Southwest and Native American subjects. This family tradition, which stretches back over a century, will be demonstrated by Olay at the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology on Saturday, Feb. 28, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For details, call 277-5963.

Space D will host a benefit this Sunday afternoon, Feb. 29, at 3 p.m. for Cuidando Los Niños, an organization serving homeless families and kids. Even if the spirit of giving doesn't move you to attend, you'll want to stop by anyway. Levi Romero will be on hand to deliver some blistering verse to the crowd, and the Frank McCulloch Group will provide some tunes. Douglas Kent Hall's photographs will line the walls. All donations from the show will go to Cuidando Los Niños. For directions, call 259-9771 or e-mail Hall at
