Culture Shock

Crossing the line

Art, music, poetry, vended wares and delicious food come together in a two-day, three-venue, border-busting extravaganza dubbed AZ/NM Connection. With over 60 participating artists from both statesfrom graphic stylist Jeremy “Eyerock” Arviso to surrealist painter Lalo Cota to geometry-minded designer of cuteness Yai Cecreamand eclectic musical acts like Shining Soul, Wake Self, Indigenize and Bat Wings for Lab Rats, it must be for our own good that the group show is divided into three sub-events. Taken all together, the effect might be simply overwhelming.
