3rd Thursday at the Museum - An Evening with Zarco Guerrero

THIRD THURSDAY at the MUSEUM

An Evening with Zarco Guerrero – The Gila and The Salt: Our River Stories

Join Zarco's zany cast of masked characters when they come together once again to share their fascinating stories of the Gila and Salt Rivers. These stories span from ancient to modern times, detailing everything from flora and fauna to centuries of migrations. Over 2000 years of history are laced with humor, sarcasm and biting social commentary.

Zarco was named “2017 Arizona’s Best Storyteller” by the Phoenix New Times. He became a fellow with the Southwest Folklife Alliance in 2015 and recently won the Water Public Art Challenge in partnership with the Pueblo Grande Museum from the Arizona Community Foundation. This prize is to create a public art work that honors the great water legacy of the Ancient Sonoran Desert People.

After a break for the best local coffee and dessert, join in a conversation with some local experts about the issues introduced by Zarco’s compelling story telling techniques.

3rd Thursday at the Museum presents events that are part artist portrait, part history lesson, part community forum and part creative event. Open to the public; donations welcome. Sponsored by Cortez Coffee. Click here for the full schedule of 3rd Thursday events, or call 480-350-5100 for more information.
