7:00 PM Ancient Geoglyphs The deserts of the American southwest contain one of the largest concentrations of geoglyphs outside of Peru’s Nazca Lines. These ancient Native American works of earthen art can be up to hundreds of feet long, and yet are often invisible until viewed from above. Before drones, GPS, or Google Maps, photographer Harry Casey began a unique archaeology project. Armed with nothing more than topographic maps, 35mm film cameras, and his beloved Piper J3 Cub aircraft, Casey spent thirty-five years documenting the region’s geoglyphs before natural erosion and human intervention could destroy these fragile sites. A newly published book, Geoglyphs of the Desert Southwest: Earthen Art as Viewed from Above, authored by Harry Casey and Anne Morgan, collects Casey’s photographs into the first visual record of these beautiful and mysterious features. A book signing will take place after the lecture.

7:00 PM Stage: Twelfth Night Twelfth Night gives us one of Shakespeare’s most remarkable heroines, the quick-witted Viola, who assumes the disguise of a page boy for Duke Orsino and finds herself at the center of an explosive love triangle in which identity, passion and gender all threaten to come undone. Themes of gender frequently appear in Shakespeare’s plays and are part of the plot in Twelfth Night. This production will explore gender identity through Shakespeare’s text and gender-fluid casting. Ages 13 and older. Post-show talkbacks on Saturday, January 11 and 18. ASL-Interpreted performance, 2 :00 PM, Saturday, January 18.

Admission/Cost: $14 - $16
