The University of New Mexico’s famed lithography workshop, the Tamarind Institute (founded in 1970), is presenting a special documentary highlighting a series of collaborations with three New Mexico artists. Nina Elder, Tom Miller and Judy Tuwaletstiwa all live within a 66 mile radius of the workshop. Each presents a unique response to New Mexico’s history, landscape and culture. The film 66 Mile Radius will have its first screening in Albuquerque at the Guild Cinema (3405 Central NE) on Saturday, Aug. 5, at 1pm. This event is free and open to the public. Following the screening participants in the project will be available for a question and answer session. The second screening will happen in Santa Fe at the Center for Contemporary Arts (1050 Old Pecos Trail) on Thursday, Aug. 10, at 6pm. This screening is also free and will feature a Q&A with participants. 66 Mile Radius was shot and produced by Melinda Frame, a Regional Emmy Award winner who, for the last three years, has been shooting the travel documentary series “New Mexico True Television.” A concurrent art exhibition, 66 Mile Radius: Three New Mexico Artists at Tamarind, opened at the Tamarind Institute Gallery on June 17 and will run through Sept. 8.
