This is the time of year when choices for entertainment and exploration are so numerous that you can go catatonic trying to decide which ones rise to the top.
Sure, there’s the International Folk Art Market (check out the photos on Journal North’s front page) drawing the crowds on Museum Hill this weekend, while Art Santa Fe will offer an air-conditioned alternative with world-class contemporary arts Friday through Sunday in the Santa Fe Community Convention Center (artsantafe.com gives you details).
And Juan Siddi Flamenco Santa Fe returns Sunday with the first of its three season performances in the Lensic Performing Arts Center, 211 W. San Francisco St. ($25-$74, 988-1234).
But we always like to point out some of the quirkier offerings.
LOWRIDER PIÑATA: Justin Favela, who uses simple materials to have a little fun with American pop culture, is heading to Santa Fe this weekend to create a lowrider in piñata style to hang from the ceiling at the New Mexico Museum of Art – and he’s happy to have help.
