A new installation by artist Nicola López, Haunted, opened at the Albuquerque Museum, sort of. The large-scale exhibit of collaged, printed and hand-drawn elements that fills the main wall in the entryway to the museum ironically examines the Southwestern landscape haunted by the inescapable presence of humans. On display until at least May 2021, Haunted will hopefully greet visitors soon and assuredly will have a virtual component available on the museum’s website in the coming weeks.

It’s not a good time to gather together in large groups. It is, however, an excellent time to incinerate our woes and worries. This combination makes this year’s 96th Annual Burning of Zozobra in Santa Fe something of an essential ritual. The 2020 event, like so many, has gone virtual, with the burning of Old Man Gloom being telecast live on KOAT-7 on Sept. 4 starting at 7pm. But AMP Concerts is helping build the community spirit with a COVID-safe Zozobra Watch Party at HIPICO, Santa Fe’s premiere equestrian facility. Viewers are invited to see all the action go down on two large HD video screens, drive-in-style. Cuarenta y Cinco and Severo y Grupo Fuego perform live on stage before the burning. Tickets are $49, $66, $88 and $110 per carload (up to six people per car). Early bird arrival and setup starts at 4:30pm. All cars must be in by 6:50pm. You must purchase tickets in advance at ampconcerts.org/event/363759/zozobra-watch-party. (Devin D. O’Leary)HIPICO Santa Fe (Santa Fe)Zozobra Watch Party

Even the ’rona can’t stop chile season! Clear some space out of your freezer and head down to Big Jim Farms in Los Ranchos to take part in the fourth annual Green Chile U-PICK. From 9am to 5pm every day through Oct. 31, families can enjoy great views and weather at this safe and socially distanced activity. Pick your own green chiles—organically grown on a nine-acre farm—and have them roasted on site. This year Big Jim has also planted other fruits and veggies for U-PICK at his farm, too. There will be an open-air farm market with pre-picked fruits and veggies for sale. Chile-lovers of all ages are invited to attend this free gathering. Chile pricing starts at $1.50 per pound.
