What to do this week: Nov. 11-17

(Chancey Bush/Journal)

Thanksgiving is coming up and I am thankful for all of the upcoming sporting events. Check out the University of New Mexico women’s basketball team as the weather keeps getting colder. Or get ready to deal with any holiday stress by taking a yoga class.

 

Exploring basketry
The Maxwell Museum of Anthropology, 500 University Blvd. NE, is celebrating the opening of two new exhibits — “Conversing with the Land: Native North American Baskets of the Maxwell Museum Collection” and “We Were Basket Makers Before We Were Pueblo People: Pueblo Coiled Baskets.”
There will be a free panel discussion Friday, Nov. 11, at 6 p.m. on Pueblo basketry moderated by anthropologist and guest co-curator Bruce Bernstein. A reception will follow.
Both exhibits will be on display through Jan. 10, 2024.

 

Tears for fears
“The Season of La Llorona” begins 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11, at The X – Experimental Theatre, 203 Cornell Drive NE.

Namaste a while
Start off your Friday morning at the Barelas Community Center, 801 Barelas Road SW, for some Gentle Yoga Flow. This event offers a great combination of breathing techniques, poses and standing postures in a lowkey environment. There is no experience needed as all skills levels are welcome.

Free movie screening
Head to the Southwest Film Center at The University of New Mexico, 1 Redondo Drive NE, for a screening of “Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song.” After saving a Black Panther from the police, a prostitute goes on the run from “the man” with the assistance of his community and some Hells Angels.
