Art & Culture
Submitted by Carole Higuera-Fisher
Deep roots in Tucson and a passion for our amazing desert surrounding us has contributed to the artist I have become. Both sides of my family have been here for over 130 years and the cultural aspects of that history are subtlety incorporated into my ceramics.
Tucson Happenings is devoted to our local artists and have been publishing monthly artist profiles for years. This page will list many artists that have profiled since we went digital in May of 2015.

This origami model is fun to make and fun to share with others. I adapted it from a traditional interactive model to fit my 'Prehistoric Origami' workshops. After folding the pterosaur you hold it by the wings and gently pull them apart to activate the 'pecking' action of the beak.

Every weekend is booked from now till the middle of November! We are doing a lot of investigating right now and then in October a bunch of special events! Some events we have never done before like Acadia Ranch and Gleeson, AZ.

Here in Tucson, there are two kinds of boots: cowboy, and everything else. Designers have latched onto cowboy boots like never before, and by the end of September, they will be just as popular in New York City and Miami as they are here. If you already have cowboy boots, now is the time to see if they need the attention of a professional. Believe it or not, a good pair of leather boots can last for decades if given regular care.
