Hearing about the horrific violence and political turmoil in Syria has greatly saddened me, as well as raised questions about the background of the country. How, I wonder, has day-to-day life been for Syrians, and particularly for Syrian women, while being ruled by an oppressive military regime for the past 40 years?     The beautiful documentary “The Light In Her Eyes” opens a window into the changing roles of girls, women, and Islam in Syria. These subjects are illuminated by the story of school for girls to...
One of our favorite artists, Ann Magnuson, is working on a musical and spoken-word tribute to Jobriath, the fantastic but almost forgotten glam rocker from the 70s, and she's looking for pledges to help her and her collaborators finish the project.

Which is why...
When you were little, did you ever make paper snowflakes in art class? Well, papel picado is kind of like that, only much more elaborate. Originating in Mexico, the folk art involves making cuts in colored tissue paper and then stringing the designs into banners. It sounds simple, but the results are gloriously elaborate.
