The circus is in town and I’m scared

Given the noble mission of the annual Shrine Circus in Albuquerque, Alisa Valdes feels a bit remiss using the event as a jumping-off point to explore the fact that polls show more Americans are afraid of clowns than are afraid of climate change.

Branding for Artists

Dovya Friedman gets real about getting paid

While branding might be hard for people not trained in business, it's oftentimes the biggest difference between being a struggling artist who must work a day job to survive, and being an artist who is able to make a living from one's art.

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
