Do your interests have a weird cross section like manga and Shakespeare? Mine too. This Saturday, you can indulge in the marriage of your very particular passions at the New Mexico Museum of Art's St. Francis Auditorium in Santa Fe. In conjunction with the visit of Shakespeare's First Folio to the museum and the 400th anniversary of the Bard's death, facilitators will lead a workshop helping participants create their own graphic version of Hamlet's famous “To Be or Not to Be” soliloquy. This event is totally free and open to the public; get thee to the New Mexico Museum of Art at 1pm. (Maggie Grimason)New Mexico Museum of Art (Santa Fe)Comic Book Shakespeare
Local arts organization Basement Films—one of the few remaining first-generation micro-cinemas in existence—will crack open its vaults for The Analogue Spectacular. Audiences are in for an evening of "wild and wooly media." There's no telling what sort of strange, old 16mm and 35mm film the Basement folks will be dredging up. Weird documentaries? Antique educational films? You'll just have to show up and find out. Tickets are $5 at the SWFC box office. (Devin D.

- Wanted: Your Best Photographs
Shutterbugs gather up your best pieces and pick some to submit for hanging in the new Bernalillo County headquarters when the gov-peeps move to Alvarado Square, happening now until Monday, August 31. The selected photographs will be printed in a large scale and format. They will be used to create a welcoming environment for county customers, county employees and the general public. Some will be used on the windows of the new Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office suite. The photographs should represent the history and character of Bernalillo County and its people, places, landscapes and unique events in our county. There are some big bucks involved as chosen photographers will receive $1,500, with a limit of one photograph per artist. The chosen photos will become part of the public art program’s permanent collection. There is no fee or age limit required to submit. For more information, visit bernco.gov/community-services/current-call-for-entries.aspx. Ends August 31. (Carolyn Carlson)
