This is a solo-actor play about artist Georgia O’Keeffe, written and performed by Lucinda McDermott.
The show is presented by Flower and Bone Productions and the College of Fine Arts at UNM. In this play, Georgia O’Keeffe is resurrected to reclaim her legacy, but there are complications in her way.

The Jewish Book Fest kicks off Sept. 11 and runs with events through Oct. 26.
Sunday’s featured book is “Woman on Fire” by Lisa Barr. This event is virtual and in-person for those who are intrigued. Tickets are $10, plus fees.
Tickets for the Jewish Book Fest series pass start at $65, plus fees. Tickets can be purchased at holdmyticket.com.

 

Rio Grande Doggy Paddle

From 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10, the city of Albuquerque Aquatics Division has collaborated with the Department of Animal Welfare for a dog swim day at the Rio Grande Outdoor Pool.

The Rio Grande Outdoor Pool, 1410 Iron Ave SW, is closed to all public not participating in the event, and owners must show valid vaccination records upon check-in. Each dog must have current vaccination records for rabies, parvovirus, distemper and bordetella.

People are not allowed in the pool unless with their dog. One dog per adult human.

The cost is $5 per dog and information can be found at cabq.gov, where a liability waiver can also be found to participate.
