ARCHITECTURE / ART THEORY
Once again MIC is pleased to have Arcosanti come to Clarkdale on Sunday, December 7th for two thought-provoking and stimulating presentations. “Arcosanti and Urban Alternatives” and “The Notion of Craft.” Cosanti Foundation President Jeff Stein and Arcosanti Resident Architect and Ceramist, Nadia Begin will present from 1-3pm.
An exciting new feature at MIC this year is the Poetry Slam hosted by well-known area poet, Christopher Fox Graham. This is an open event – all poets wishing to enter please contact Christopher Fox Graham at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Poetry Slam is on Sunday December 7 from 4 to 6 PM.
Red Earth Theater comes to Made In Clarkdale with performances of The Wild Party (adult topics and admission fee). The Wild Party, a full-length narrative poem by Joseph Moncure March was written in 1926. It was considered shocking and was variously censored, banned and ignored before Art Speigleman (the New Yorker cartoonist) found a copy of it in the 1990s and released an edition of the play with his illustrations. There will be two performances of this play, Thursday and Friday December 11 and 12. Both performances begin at 7:30 PM.
Made in Clarkdale will also offer two evenings to experience the newest area art-form: wine tasting. FourEight Wineworks will bring their well-educated staff and discerning palates to the show to offer education and tastings. Of course there will be a small fee for this service.
