La Esquina: arte de la comunidad
3 yrs later
By Geneva Gamez
Planes crashing, skyscrapers falling, bodies missing, people desperate; flights cancelled, 24hr news re-caps on every channel, front-page headlines; a cry out loud, a peoples confused, a country in tears. A sun-filled gloomy Tuesday turned Black.
Cannon Art Gallery Exhibits “Beasts and Bones” Display of Papier-Mâché Fantasy Creatures
The William D. Cannon Art Gallery will present the exhibition Beasts and Bones: The Cartonería of the Linares Family from September 12 through November 5, 2004. The Linares Family’s unique position in the traditional Mexican art of papier-mâché (cartonería) bridges the gap between traditional folk art and fine art. Using simple materials, the family of artists melds playful forms of skeletal figures (calavera) and fantastic, mythical beasts (alebrije) into imaginative one-of-a-kind sculptures. This exhibition features over 70 papier-mâché sculptures by the Linares Family and their followers, borrowed from the Museum of Man in San Diego, the UCLA Fowler Museum in Los Angeles, and local collectors including Larry Kent.

Criminal imita a “Nueve reinas”
Por Jose Daniel Bort
Rehacer una película tiene todas las de perder. Si la fuente es buena, es casi imposible de mejorar, y si es mala, no tiene sentido rehacerla. Esta es la realidad a la que se enfrenta “Criminal”, a estrenarse esta semana.

Ortiz Steps Up in Aztec Rout
By John Philip Wyllie
Prior to the start of the 2004 football season wide receiver Robert Ortiz expressed hope that he could improve upon his 2003 performance and contribute more to the Aztec’s offense. While overshadowed by fellow wide-out Jeff Webb a year ago, Ortiz’s 33 catches for 329 yards and one touchdown were good enough for third place among Aztec receivers. Having matched his previous career scoring output of 12 points in just the first 17 minutes of the Saturday’s 38-21 triumph over Idaho State, the Horizon Christian product is off to a scintillating start.

Fabio Santos, My Mentor, My Inspiration, My Friend
By Victor M. Sanchez, Jr.
My introduction to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu came one evening back in 1993 while watching the first Ultimate Fighting Championship. I saw a tall skinny Brazilian guy named Royce Gracie render helpless much larger and heavier men using only his family’s Jiu-Jitsu techniques. Being a larger and heavier man myself I could not believe my eyes!
