A Weekend with Pablo Picasso by actor/writer Herbert Siguenza of the powerful and politically renown theatrical troupe Culture Clash, created the original play at San Diego Repertory (2011) and stars as Pablo Picasso, the most influential artist in modern history.

Set in the 1957 artist’s studio in southern France, the artist paints and speaks and directly to the audience. “Six paintings in three days? Who do you think I am---Dali?”

Picasso was the first rock-star artist—a ferocious pacifist, obsessive art maker, flamboyantly opinionated philosopher, and self-proclaimed clown—who relished his passionate views about love, death, war, beauty, eternity, and creativity.

The Culture Clash artist, Siguenza’s one-man show, will amaze and promise a weekend you will never forget.


Iris was able to reserve center section seats for us for a great price. The first eleven seats will be in the center; after that they will be in the near side, so get your reservations in quickly.

                   Overnight Adventures: Trip to Zion National Park

 

We have a beautiful exciting trip planned for you on May 21 and 22, 2015. A trip where you do not have to do a lot of walking to enjoy nature at its most beautiful! For those of you who are most adventurous, there is a shuttle in Zion that will drop you off and pick you up at all the trail heads.

Majestic View Lodge ( http://www.majesticviewlodge.com) is located in Springfield, Utah.
Phone 1-435-772-0665 ext. 115. Contact Ryana. Our cost per room is $135 plus tax for a room with a king-size bed (usually $189); for a room with two queen-size beds the cost is $149 plus tax. Each room has a balcony facing Zion Mountains. This rate is good for three days before and after our trip should you want to book longer.
The St. George Shuttle from Las Vegas Airport accommodates your schedule. It leaves around six times a day starting at 7:00am. The cost for a round trip is around $70.00 each. To reach the Lodge, it is a three-hour ride in a nine-person van.
Our trip will be for two nights. The night we arrive, we will have a dinner together in Springdale. Gail will also plan a dinner the second night for those interested. The following day, there will be two-hour bus tours of Zion free of charge.
Our hotel has a shuttle to drop you off all over Springdale, which is a fun shopping and eating town. It also takes us into Zion to pick up a tour bus with docent for a free two-hour overview.


What to do now? Call the Lodge and book the nights. You can add nights if you want to.
Call Gail Fisher at 1-408-238-3899 and let her know for what nights you are booking your room.

 

 

    

 

 

    

All proceeds from the events will go towards the "Sustaining the Mind campaign" which supports basic research at Brandeis University in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
