Politics is heating up Santa Fe as the legislative session enters its final week and the municipal election approaches.
Maybe it's time to cultivate a little cool
The Monroe Gallery of Photography offers just what the doctor ordered with a new exhibition opening tonight, "When Cool Was King." Soak up the vibes of Brando, Sinatra, McQueen, Newman and the Rat Pack from the days when a certain aloof, impenetrable, unperturbed quality equaled desirability.
The opening reception is 5 to 7 p.m. tonight at the gallery, 112 Don Gaspar. Regular hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, and admission is free. The exhibit continues through April 20.
And if the show inspires you to view more photography, check out "Native American Portraits: Points of Inquiry," which opens noon to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, 710 Camino Lejo.
You'll see another brand of cool with Native dance performances at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., Lee Marmon (Laguna) speaking about "Photography and the Pueblo Imagination" at 2 p.m., and Will Wilson (Navajo) setting up his portable portrait studio.
