The Ghost That Haunts
Albuquerque homelessness and An Adobe Christmas Carol
If art has a role in finding solutions to the problem of homelessness, its most useful tool may be offering perspective. Playwright Pete Parkin has adapted the Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol, cast it with actors playing the homeless and set it in Albuquerque circa 2019 to do just that.

A World of Wearable Art
The antidote to the ugly Christmas sweater
A World of Wearable Art opened on Tuesday, Dec. 3 and will remain throughout the month, but I caution that it operates more like a sale than an art show. By this I mean people are buying what they like, taking it off the wall and taking it home with them. It is a constantly shrinking show of original, one-of-a-kind works. Best to see it while you can.
Check out the final forum of the regional exhibition Species in Peril Along the Rio Grande, All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914, Christmas in New Mexico, 12x12 and Relaxed Nights at the Museum.
