BARRICK HOSTS

‘ART AS DOCUMENT’

Are artworks merely works of art? Or do they serve as documents, providing more than aesthetic value?

Those questions will be pondered at UNLV’s Barrick Museum Friday afternoon during “Art as Document,” a discussion keyed to the museum’s exhibit “Public/Private: Images of Devotion From 19th Century and Early 20th Century Mexico,” which continues through Sept. 13.

Curator Emmanuel Ortega and artist Matthew Couper will co-host the discussion, focusing on the function of text in art.

The free discussion is part of the museum’s “Critique and Conversation” series, informal and in-depth discussions about art and ideas held the final Friday of each month.

“Art and Document” will begin at 4 p.m. Friday at the Marjorie Barrick Museum at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, 4504 S. Maryland Parkway. For more information, call 702-895-3381.

CINDERELLA TALE

PLAYS WINCHESTER

English speakers know her as Cinderella. But the Cinderella story gets an update — and a Spanish-language twist — in “La Madrastra del la Cenisenta,” a comedic version of the tale to be presented this Saturday and next at Winchester Cultural Center.

The theater company La mare que at va Pari will stage the play, which brings the Cinderella story into the 21st century, with technology impacting expectations. Steven Gallegos directs the production.

“La Madrastra del la Cenisenta” will be presented at 7 p.m. Saturday and Sept. 6 at the Winchester Center, 3130 McLeod Drive.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 the day of the show, and may be purchased at the front desk or online at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/parksregistration. For more information, call 702-455-7340.
