Events in El Paso/Juarez 05/12-05/18

El Paso, Juarez and Chihuahua museums are celebrating International Museums Day, which is the 18th with a week of activities. I published a small article in the current issue of El Paso Inc, but I am going to list the whole schedule here. there seem to be some very interesting exhibitions in Chihuahua City and some lectures etc here. There is also the culture Cruise on the 15th which will include museums, but really there are events all week. -david sokolec
