-Friday, December 6th, 6pm: First Friday Art Opening: at The Fábrica & SubRosa –Joy Schendledecker: Teratoplastica
Joy Schendledecker is an artist who works in a variety of media including fibers, sculpture, collage, printmaking, and photography. She has a longstanding preoccupation with bodies and gender, matter-out-of-place, attraction/repulsion, labor, and materiality. Her current work focuses on petrochemicals, plastics, and marine debris, through the multiple lenses of discard studies, environmental justice, and toxic post/humanness in the era of the Anthropocene/Chthulucene/Capitalocene.
The title of this show, Teratoplastica, references positive and negative aspects of our current plastic discards crisis: Teras are supernatural omens that are at the same time wondrous marvels and monstrous malformations and deviations. We have created a fabulous monster and now it is shaping us and our world in unpredictable, queer ways.

AND in couple weeks -- Thursday, December 19th, 6:30pm: Las Posadas 2019 at the Hub
We, at the Hub, are so happy to be participating with Las Posadas again this year. Join us on Thursday, December 19th to welcome the procession. Or walk and sing with the procession, and we'll greet you with music, food and warm drinks. As the number of refugees increases every day, the tradition of Las Posadas reminds us of the many families around the globe asking for a place to survive and raise their children.
The nightly processions of Las Posadas are a re-enactment of Mary and Joseph's search for a lodging (posada) in Bethlehem. Each night, we will gather for a candlelight procession to the "posada" - the venue for that night's celebration. The next night's procession begins at the previous night's location until the we reach the final night's venue. https://www.facebook.com/events/3128685787161396/
