March’s Thinkery21 celebrates all things Austin! This month features-
From bacon, egg, and cheese to migas with avocado we all know that the breakfast taco is the most important taco of the day. Join Mando Rayo of Taco Journalism as he whips up some huevos, heats up tortillas, talks about his book, Austin Breakfast Tacos. Come tackle the important issues like flour or corn, red or verde, rajas or nopales.
(thanks to HEB for providing the taco supplies!)
Join multi-media artist Jennifer Chenoweth as she presents her project the “Hedonic Map of Pleasure and Pain in Austin, Texas”. As Austinites share the physical locations where they experienced their highest and lowest emotional points, Chenoweth has developed a collective map of this weird city. At Thinkery21, we will be accepting submissions to the map and sharing our own most impactful places and memories of Austin.
Wear your boots, grab a partner, and learn some truly Texan dances including the Texas Two Step. Join teachers and choreographers from Go Dance as they walk you through the moves and steps to have you swinging, side-stepping, and promenading in no time!
Join Meghann Rosales as she demonstrates the intricate art of hand painting images on a tiny canvas – your nails! Learn how she uses very thin brushes, dotting tools, and other special tricks to create very artistic manicures.
The talented spin artists of Dub Academy will be back mixing tunes and demonstrating their techniques. Explore an interactive beats installation in Light Lab and learn how everyone can be a DJ.
