Art & Culture
Emily Mann describes her work as Rustic-Refined ornamental and functional metalwork incorporating light play and various mediums like glass and mica. Inspired by the countless color tones & textures, and the magic of rainstorms, her work draws upon the flora and flow of the landscape, and truly flourishes after a nice long hike or challenging mountain bike ride. The hardness of the medium is softened by a woman’s touch and whimsy; the rustic nature is made sophisticated by intricate designs, tailored finishes and inlaid glass.
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.

Try these easy-to-fold paper units to construct houses and other structures. Great for an individual or group activity! You can create an imaginary house, your own neighborhood, or build a whole village! Start today and continue adding structures for an on-going project. The units will hold together well without glue, but the larger the structure, the less stable it will become. A little glue stick can be used on the ends of the connector pieces to stabilize units, but don’t glue until you are sure your structure is the way you want it!
