For the next couple of weeks I will be shuttling back and forth between Los Angeles and Phoenix to give my monumental paper mache puppet workshop at Xico Arte y Cultura in Phoenix, Arizona. Xico is a multidisciplinary arts organization that was created in 1975 by a group of local Chicano and Native American artists. Their vision is to promote indigenous arts and culture through community based arts programs.
