This Friday, the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center unveils a new exhibition by Jonathan Juanico of Acoma Pueblo. Juanico—a self-taught artist, who is also the purveyor of Native Maize Apparel & Design—blends traditional symbolism and stories rooted in the natural world with digital mediums that bring them to light in an entirely new way. This collection of Juanico's work, titled Degrees of Tradition, will be up until April 8, and is included with admission to the museum. Join the artist and other celebrants for a reception on Friday, Jan. 19, between 5 and 8pm.
Adobe Theater Re-opens
After a brief shuttering while its interiors were being renovated, the Adobe Theater (9813 Fourth Street NW) will swing open its doors once more on Friday, Jan. 19, for the opening of Doublewide, Texas. This comedy authored by the same playwrights that brought us the wildly popular The Savannah Sipping Society, weaves a tale about life inside of one of the smallest trailer parks in all of Texas. Here, the drama unfolds as friends, enemies and neighbors of the tiny community band together to fight annexation. General admission is $20, and Doublewideruns until Feb. 11.

The hour-long lab begins runs from 2 to 3pm, and is suitable for everyone 9 years old and up.
