Texas has its official artists for 2007 and 2008, the soon-to-open MACC has a program manager, and Zach has a Golden Girl drop in for a visit
Playwright/screenwriter/teacher Amparo Garcia-Crow, in the midst of one of her busiest years ever, has landed a new gig that will keep her busier still: program manager for the Mexican American Cultural Center. Construction on Phase I of the $63 million project is expected to be finished in June, but the center's grand opening will not take place until September. Herlinda Zamora, formerly of the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum and Mexic-Arte Museum, is also joining the MACC as exhibitions coordinator.
You can go for the Golden Girl this weekend when saucy Blanche herself aka actress Rue McClanahan visits the Zachary Scott Theatre Center to discuss her career and new memoir, My First Five Husbands and the Ones Who Got Away, with Zach Artistic Director Dave Steakley on the Kleberg Stage, 1421 W. Riverside. It's a one-day-only appearance Sunday, April 29, 2pm and seating is limited. For more information, call 476-0594 or visit www.zachscott.com.
