Exploring Our Own Backyard
516 ARTS looks to our local past
While many works included have come directly from Ray Graham’s personal collection, In Our Own Backyard seeks to go beyond merely exhibiting an archive by bringing in current work to demonstrate a continuum and inspire the next generation of collectors, curators and artists.
Reading and Hiking
60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: Albuquerque
Topping many Burquenos’ list of why they love living here is access to the great outdoors, but what if you’re at a loss for an excursion that fits your desired length, landscape and difficulty, or if you’re just tired of hiking the same trails every weekend?

Fool for Love
If you don’t already have plans to watch two ex-lovers and an alcoholic father argue in a desert motel room this weekend, then come on down to The Adobe Theater for Sam Shepard's Fool for Love. Directed by Jeff Andersen, this Shepard classic explores personal identity, both in and out of love. Shepard himself said about the play, “Falling in love is such a dumbfounding experience. In one way you wouldn’t trade it for the world. In another way it’s absolute hell.” Curtain is at 7:30pm on March 28, 29 and 30, with a 2pm matinee on Sunday, March 31. Tickets are $15.

Become a TV Writer Workshop Series
Do you long to be the next Stephen J. Cannell? Do you have another “The Rockford Files” burning deep inside you? You can’t just take the paper out of your typewriter, throw it in the air and hope for success. Scotty Milder teaches you what you need to know to Become a TV Writer, finding the fame, fortune and plot-twisting cliffhangers of the small screen. Milder says, “I’ll be talking about the process of developing hour-long drama pilots and series bibles/pitches, the structure/hierarchy of a writer’s room, script format and the way TV distribution is changing.” Classes run Sundays starting March 31 through May 12 from 6pm to 9pm and cost $350 (that you'll surely recoup in the first royalty check). Sol Acting Academy hosts the series and visit www.solacting.com for more info.
