I have been told, though those churls have not actually sent me information, that the annual faculty art show will be going up starting today. The official reception is around the 24th, but you can take a look without all those pesky crowds now. Oh, I forgot the crowds is why you go. I’m told the majority of the work is sculptural rather than designed for the wall as in previous years.

Last Saturday, I wandered over to the new University Library at the Cultural Center of the North in Juarez. What a delight. It is light, airy contemporary. There are couches and a cafe with huge windows and a great view. Hanging from a wire at the moment are large photographs of street scenes in Juarez. This has only been opened a few months, and I know where I am going to be spending my time.
