Aspen Eco Fest comes to town April 23-25, broadening locals' and visitors' eco-horizons with new products, technology and ways to decorate the environment. The Red Brick Council for the Arts will host an eco-art exhibition during the festival, featuring art made from recycled, reclaimed and found objects and there's an open call for works of art to display. The exhibition will take place at the Inn at Aspen on April 25; plenty of time to get creative and transform that recycling!
Many locals, and local parents, are slopeside in Vancouver but for those of you here and enjoying the fresh snow and post-President's Weekend powder, there's a lot going on at night. 1/16 and 1/17 at the Wheeler Opera House, Pedro Almodovar's latest film, Broken Embraces, screens at 7:30 p.m. Penelope Cruz has rejoined Almodovar's cast doing her finest work, as always, in her native tongue.
