One of Fiesta's most beloved events, the Fiesta Arts Fair at the Southwest School of Art, will be celebrating creativity in San Antonio with live music, regional and national artists, children's art projects and more. Fiesta Arts Fair takes place on lush, shady grounds and regularly attracts more than 12,000 people each year. A nationally recognized juried art show brings in 110 artists from around the country, exhibiting ceramics, jewelry, glass, photography, painting, wearable art and other fascinating art objects, which will all be for sale. Live music will be provided by Choupique High Rollers, The Love Leighs, Los #3 Dinners, Nakia, George Gaytan, Toro Flores and Zarabande and Mitch Webb & Joe Reyes on Saturday. Tin Can Trio, Chubby Knuckle Choir, Del Castillo, Shiny Ribs, George Gaytan and Sergio de los Santos will perform on Sunday. The Children's Art Garden encourages kids to experiment with printmaking, stamping, beading, embossing, and even making their own Fiesta medals and crowns. Admission supports the education programs at the non-profit Southwest School of Art.
Along with King William Fair and Cornyation, the Southwest School of Art’s Fiesta Arts Fair tops the creative set’s short list of not-to-be-missed Fiesta events. An annual tradition since 1973, the two-day fair orbits around an outdoor marketplace filled with ceramics, jewelry, paintings, photography and wearable works from more than 100 national and regional artists (along with local favorites like Diana Kersey, Laura Quinoñes, Jennifer Ling Datchuk and Ryan Takaba). Much more than an art sale, FAF features appearances by Fiesta royalty, an Easter egg hunt on Sunday, tasty treats available for purchase (from La Gloria, The Fruteria, the Institute of Chili, Chocollazo and others) and live music on two stages. Highlights include “uke-centric” roots duo The Love Leighs (12:30 p.m. Sat), The Voice alum/CeeLo Green collaborator Nakia (4 p.m. Sat), Austin-based swamp rockers Chubby Knuckle Choir (1 p.m. Sun) and Latin fusion outfit Del Castillo (2:30 p.m. Sun). In addition to its Children’s Art Garden with face-painting and hands-on activities, FAF’s new Young Masters Project invites kids to create works inspired by Salvador Dalí, Claude Monet and Frida Kahlo and even dress up as the artist of their choice for a photo op.

That director Ishiro Honda had Katsumi Tezuka don that suffocating radioactive-reptile suit to stomp a scale-model of Tokyo in 1954’s Gojira rather than, say, Washington, D.C., might indicate something about Nihonjinron versus Toby Keith’s boot in yer ass, but we’ve come to praise Godzilla, not to write an ill-informed undergrad thesis about him/her. Subsequent films saw history’s most kickass nuclear-holocaust metaphor save mankind from such varied threats as Mechagodzilla, Godzillasaurus and Space Godzilla, but 1985’s The Return of Godzilla is a relapse into malevolence that’s never been released on DVD in the US. In anticipation of yet another reboot to be released next month, Cult Movie TV Danger Zone is screening Return (aka Godzilla 1985). Tickets, which must be purchased online, are $2—less than they would’ve cost 20 years ago. Plus it’s the Japanese version with English subtitles, so it counts as an artsy foreign film.

Ginger Hudson will be the speaker at this monthly meeting for the NPSOT-SA.
Kevin Prince, aka Mr. Composition, is one of the hardest workers in SA music. The 23-year-old has released at least one LP or mixtape every year since he was 18 (much of this material is available at mrcomposition.bandcamp.com). Last year’s release, Running Red Lights Through Life, was one of my favorite local albums of 2013. It laid bare the rapper’s growth from a curious and earnest wordsmith to a master of his craft, gifted at melding personal narrative with commentary on universal concerns. Graffiti the Mind, out on May 2, sees the emcee truly coming into his own. Produced by San Anto native Ruler Why, Graffiti the Mind features beats that enhance the meaning of individual songs. Prince rhymes with entertaining, engaging lyrics, delivered with a unique flare in diverse styles. As Prince told the Current, he has long used rap as “a means of expressing [himself] and [his] experiences and frustrations.” As Prince has grown as an artist, he’s expanded his scope, concerned now with broader societal issues. Most impressively, these aren’t just raps; these are songs. Graffiti, anchored by the anthemic posse cut “Believe” and thought-provoking extended metaphor “Graffiti Lenz,” is a joy to bump and communicates an unstoppably positive message: Be patient, work your ass off, ask questions and give of yourself if you want to receive anything in return. Don’t miss the chance to see Graffiti done live at Fitzgerald’s on April 25
