Along with his impressive writing credits, Cross has a long history appearing in film and TV, including Arrested Development, Mr. Show with Bob and David, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and Men in Black I & II.—AM David Cross: Making America Great Again!, May 4, $41.50–$44.50, 8 pm, The Lensic Center for Performing Arts, 211 W San Francisco, ticketssantafe.org COURTESY OF SANTA FE JIN

Students flaunt their latest multimedia projects during the annual Outdoor Vision Fest.

David Cross stand-up at the Lensic

The annual Outdoor Vision Fest (OVF) features interactive environmental projections and outdoor art installations imagined and produced by Santa Fe University of Art and Design students. These multimedia creations are projected across the walls of Ricardo Legorreta’s world-famous Visual Arts Center, the Fogelson Library, and Greer Garson Theatre. The 2016 show highlights new content and displays current students’ experimental and emerging media work that transcends the boundaries of film, television, and web series productions. As in previous years, food trucks will be onsite. Last year’s event hosted nearly 3,000 guests, and the university expects even higher attendance this year.—SL Outdoor Vision Fest, April 29, 8:45–10:45 pm, free, Santa Fe University of Art and Design, 1600 St. Michael’s, santafeuniversity.edu

Santa Fe Independent Film Festival deadlines approach This fall’s eighth annual Santa Fe Independent Film Festival is now accepting film submissions, with three deadlines ahead for features and shorts. May 2’s deadline will carry an entry fee of $60 for feature films and $45 for shorts; next up is July 1 ($75 and $50); and the final deadline is August 1 ($100 and $60). Categories include animation, documentary, experimental, art, international, narrative feature, narrative short, New Mexican, mountain, and student (submission cost reduced). For guidelines and to submit a film, contact submissions coordinator Jena Braziel
at 505349-1414, or go straight to the festival’s website for the Withoutabox, Film Freeway, and Film Festival Life submission options. The rapidly growing SFIFF has earned national recognition and was named one of MovieMaker magazine’s “Top 50 Festivals Worth the Entry Fee.” The 2016 event will take place at several venues around town from October 19–23, honoring the best in independent film production.—AM Santa Fe Independent Film Festival deadlines: May 2, July 1, and August 2, 505-349-1414, santafeindependent.com

Bark at the Park With a variety of activities—a dog costume contest, food samplings, individual raffles throughout Pacheco Park’s design district, and a drawing for a grand prize—the dog-friendly Bark at the Park benefits the Santa Fe Animal Shelter and Humane Society by raising both awareness and funds for our fourlegged friends awaiting adoption. It’s not necessary to bring a dog to attend the party, but if you do bring your pups, they must be up-to-date on all vaccinations and kept on leash at all times. Twentyone businesses in Pacheco Park’s Design District will be participating in the festivities.—SL Bark at the Park, April 28, 5–7 pm, Pacheco Park Design District, 1512 Pacheco, officespacesantafe.com April 28, 2016 NOW 3

Offering breakfast, lunch, weekend brunch, afternoon tea, and dinner, Chocolate Maven is one of Santa Fe’s hidden delights.

Melissa Shaginoff artworks and amulets by Cri st i na Ol d s

Melissa Shaginoff (Chickaloon Village/Pyramid Lake) utilizes her inquisitive nature, insightful research, and Native American heritage to create each of her impeccable artworks. As part of Santa Fe’s 2015 Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) Senior Graduating Exhibition, Shaginoff presented a multimedia collection titled Apophenia, a psychological term addressing the perception of patterns or connections in seemingly random or meaningless data. “[The term ‘apophenia’] is the equivalent of perceiving images in the clouds,” says the artist, who graduated with a BA in Psychology in 2011, followed by a BFA in Studio Arts, Painting and Jewelry, and Art History from IAIA last December. Alongside drawings, paintings, and sculpture in the graduate exhibition, Shaginoff created several amulets based on mysterious indigenous objects that intrigued her. Several years ago, she was 12

selected for the pilot Undergraduate Artist Leadership Program with the National Museum of the American Indian where she came across a collection of amulets credited to her tribe, the Athabascan Nation, Chickaloon Village of Alaska. The museum had little information about the objects. “I found [the amulets] profoundly beautiful, and I saw things in them,” says Shaginoff. “They reminded me of…tools, something meant to be held in your hand and used. I connected them to my childhood of beading, sewing, and quills.” When she returned to school at IAIA, she wanted to learn more about the objects so she adopted the form into her work. “If I were a scientist, I would measure and test their organic form; if I were a historian, I would research them in the libraries and records,” Shaginoff explains. “As an artist, in order to know more, I have to create them, over and over again.” Shaginoff experiments with natural materials in her mixed media pieces. Her amulets integrate rawhide, moose antler and rib, Matanuska river driftwood, steer horn, whale baleen, trade beads, porcupine quills, and glass. “Another aspect to my exploration of varying mediums is bringing indigenous materials and techniques into my work,” she says. “Indigenous materials have another layer of knowledge embedded into their physical and metaphorical use.”

Jack Parsons

the art of the Volkswagen by St eph a n i e Love

Photographer Jack Parsons is known for reimagining the seemingly commonplace subject of automobiles. After gaining recognition for his expression of the lowrider, Parsons now explores the world of Volkswagens. The adventurous owners of VW bugs and buses populated the streets with these iconic cars throughout the 1960s, and this brand is still widely recognized around the country. Over time, however, the youthful energy and structures of these cars fade; laugh lines of rust, chipped paint, and automotive imperfections are revealed in Parsons’s works, which highlight the dilapidated vintage VWs he’s found in back parking lots across New Mexico. Parsons artistically abstracts each image by getting closer to his muses, framing rough surface textures and elemental details from one small part of the car— rather than as a whole—to create his unique vision. Embracing the nostalgia of his subject, he utilizes vibrant colors in this series, creating his own contemporary version of pop art that parallels VW’s mod ’60s style.
