<![CDATA[Summer Arts Preview - The art of it all]]>
In Santa Fe, summer has a sort of springlike effect on the arts scene. As soon as May loses its last vestige of winter, every corner of the city suddenly bursts with art. The galleries and museums blossom with new exhibits; the Plaza hums with the reverberations of the popular, twice-daily Bandstand music festival; the Railyard plays host to outdoor movies and concerts; the opera attracts aficionados from all over the globe; the libraries and bookstores and parks and summer camps offer various artistic outlets for hordes of children blissfully free of classes and homework.

In fact, Santa Fe’s summer arts scene is so extensive that we found it necessary to dedicate an entire special issue to helping you navigate the season’s festivities. In these pages, you’ll find local arts leaders’ recommendations for don’t-miss events, and you’ll gain some perspective on the work it takes to bring those events to Santa Fe. We don’t mind if you rip out the festival calendar on page 22; you may need it to keep track of all the major festivals slated to hit our city this year. Parents, we haven’t forgotten about you (or your children)—on page 21, find a rundown of all the great activities that let Santa Fe’s kids express themselves, artistically and otherwise. And if your idea of a perfect summer afternoon involves lolling in De Vargas Park, just within earshot of the Cowgirl’s band du jour, that’s fine, too.]]>
<![CDATA[The Music Man - Local promoter Tim Franke works hard to bring you great music]]>
By: Alex De Vore
Having spoken with concert promoter Jamie Lenfestey of Heath Concerts for the Santa Fe Manual, I figured I should speak to his counterpart at T-Cubed Productions, Tim Franke, for the summer arts preview. This dude has been booking great shows for a few years now and, as we head into summer, he’s got more great stuff and some good advice for our community.]]>

By: Anna Harney
While compiling and writing this article, I considered that Santa Fe has many activities available for kids this summer. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to include them all—but I was wrong.]]>

My goodness, what doesn’t call itself a festival nowadays? Even delicious celebrations of green chile and barbecue are among my favorite feasts, to be sure, but not necessarily festivals in the, ahem, traditional sense of the word.]]>

By: Tess Cutler
Collected Works Bookstore has survived the corporate giants and handheld e-readers across this great nation. The place has a family charm that separates the independent shop from its steel-faced competitors. And the last time I checked, doesn’t have French doors.]]>
<![CDATA[Is that a…hey, what is that? - SITE Santa Fe asks if you really know what you think you know]]>
By: Matthew Irwin
SITE Santa Fe embarks on quite possibly its most ambitions venture since its founding for More Real? Art in the Age of Truthiness, a collaborative biennial with the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Open July-January 2013 at SITE before heading over to MIA, the exhibition features more than 25 international and up-and-coming artists, including Ai Weiwei, Seung Woo Back, Zoe Beloff, Cao Fei, Thomas Demand, Mark Dion, Sharon Lockhart, Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, Vik Muniz, Eve Sussman, Mary Temple and Yes Men, among many others. With many of the pieces in production (even as you read), SITE curator Irene Hofmann takes a few minutes to tell us what to expect. Then you have to decide if she’s fo real.]]>
