If you lost all your money to the Easter hare or you’re splurging on everything you gave up for Lent, then the Weekly Free is here with some freebies for all you jokesters.
BOOKS AS ART
TODAY THROUGH SATURDAY
The newest exhibit at the UNM Art Museum celebrates books of all kinds, from ancient to three-dimensional and limited editions to illustrated books. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the exhibit runs until May 25.
“TO MARKET TO MARKET TO BUY A FAT PIG”
This foodie film explores the salad greens of Santa Fe, the pies of Cleveland, the crab cakes of Baltimore and the heirloom tomatoes of Nashville, Tenn. — all of which are sold at farmers markets. The film, hosted by the Sustainability Studies program, runs from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Mitchell Hall, Room 101.
No, the Vans Warped Tour isn’t coming to UNM — but the founder of it is. Founder Kevin Lyman speaks in the SUB about the craziness of touring with 100 famous bands, and he tells stories about the bands and the music business. The event starts at 7 p.m., and I have a feeling it’s going to get cray-cray.
If you’re gearing up for a senior thesis or graduate dissertation, you might need to use EndNote X, software that helps manage, organize and save citation information as you research. This tutorial, which starts at 6 p.m. in Zimmerman Library, Room 105, will get you started. Just remember to bring your laptop and install EndNote X beforehand.
The exercising qualities of laughter are simulated through stretching, clapping, breathing and chanting in this workshop hosted by SHAC. Students must sign up online at shac.unm.edu/forms/counseling-workshops.html or by calling (505) 277-4537. The workshop runs from 4 to 5 p.m.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR
