The Bead Goes On

Beadwork focus of events this weekend

Many spiritual traditions make use of beads, touched and held, in prayer or meditation, and as items for trade, storytelling, adornment and ceremony. This week people will have the chance through three separate events to learn more about the history of beads and beadwork, through a lecture, an exhibition and a class.

General Ripper Exceeded His Authority

Design Zone Exhibit

The National Museum of Nuclear Science and History unveils a new exhibit on Saturday, Feb. 1 and continues through April 26. Titled Design Zone, the new topical display features a somewhat ironic investigation into the processes that drive creation, especially in regard to video games, roller-coasters and EDM music. This exhibit was designed at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry and it has a youthful, productive vibe to it. We get that. The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists just announced that the hands on the doomsday clock were closer to midnight than ever. Even though nuclear power showed some promise in solving the world's energy needs, nuclear science still means the study of a type of war that would kill billions if put into action. Nuclear history equals the story of devising ever more efficient killing devices. It's wonderful to know citizens have a museum where they can learn all about that while also acquiring knowledge about the human creative urge. Admission to the museum, which is open daily from 9am to 5pm, ranges between $7 and $14. Go science!

Carnaval

Deep down, we are all just looking for excuses to create elaborate costumes that we can celebrate in. Halloween is the easy sell, Christmas has its ugly sweaters, Saint Patrick’s Day brings the green and you can dress up like a baby Cupid for Valentine’s Day. So why not do the same to pregame the 40 days and nights that Jesus Christ himself spent in the desert? Do precisely that at Carnaval Celebration 2020
