    Mandalas are a centuries-old symbol in Buddhism and Hinduism that have come to be used in many other cultures’ practices throughout the years. The Albuquerque Open Space hosts an annual winter solstice seed mandala making event to usher in the winter and give thanks for the harvest (the seeds also serve as food for birds migrating south for the season). Participants help design and build the mandala, which last for about a week in the open. This year, the event takes place on Sunday, Dec. 16 from 10:30am to noon. Come with an open mind and dress for the winter weather. This event is free and open to all ages. (Robin Babb)

  • Zeroes, One and Disruption

    One of the best things about artists is their ability to adjust to whatever new media come along. Ergo, great stories get told on paper, or on screens, just as they did on cave walls. Nowhere is the exploration of artistry evolving faster than in the digital realm. This concept is being explored by 10 fine artists from around the United States, in the exhibition Digital Disobedience: The Algorithm as Saboteur, curated by UNM’s Amy Traylor, Experimental Art and Technology MFA student, and Cat Hulshoff, PhD Art History student. Running now through Dec. 30 at the CFA Downtown Studio, the show tackles what it means to disrupt the world of, and through, technology in contemporary society. This show is free and open to all ages. Gallery hours are Fridays and Saturdays, 11am to 6pm. (Alisa Valdes)
