Arts and Entertainment: Top Picks for the Week

Copyright © 2020 Albuquerque Journal

With Valentine’s Day falling on a Friday, local restaurants and clubs are putting on the ritz. Unfortunately, some of these events have already sold out, including “A Celebration of Love” with the Barbara Bentree and John Rangel Jazz Trio at Dave’s Jazz Bistro, the pop-up club housed in the Santa Fe School of Cooking.

Speaking of procrastination, don’t wait until the last minute to get your Valentine’s Day shopping done. In the meantime, there are some free activities that the whole family can enjoy.

On Sunday, Feb. 9, the New Mexico Museum of Art will host a free open house where visitors can create unique Valentine’s Day cards and collages. The Renaissance-themed event will feature music by Eric Careno, refreshments and a treasure hunt. Anyone who comes in a Renaissance costume will receive a prize.

The event takes place from 1 to 4 p.m. at 107 W. Palace Ave. For more information, call 505-476-5072 or go to nmartmuseum.org.

CHARLENE TEETERS’ ‘WAY OF SORROWS’: On Feb. 13, the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts will hold a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. for the installation addressing forced migrations and the U.S.-Mexico border crises. The exhibition opened on Feb. 7 and will be on display until May 17 at 108 Cathedral Place in the museum’s North Gallery.

Teeters (Spokane) is an artist and educator who has been active in efforts to eliminate Native American mascots in the U.S. Her activism was profiled in Jay Rosenstein’s award-winning documentary “In Whose Honor?”

In an artist’s statement, Teeters said, “There have been many trails of tears and marches of death in this hemisphere since Columbus. The caravans coming to our southern border are part of an uninterrupted history of forced migrations and trails of tears.”

For more information, call 888-922-4242 or go to iaia.edu/museum.

RETHINKING THE INTERNET: The Santa Fe Council on International Relations will host Katie Singer’s talk on the connection between the web and climate change. A consultant has projected that, by 2030, communications technologies could consume 51% of global electricity and generate 23% of greenhouse gas emissions.

Katie Singer

A longtime resident of Santa Fe, Singer will reveal the internet’s main energy users and identify the chains involved in supplying the 1,000-plus substances that go into a smartphone. The event takes place from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at 413 Grant Ave., Suite D. Tickets are $5 and will also be available at the door. For more information, call 505-982-4931 or go to sfcir.org.
