Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 10.15.09





.This Week's Calendar | Galleries | Music @ the Clubs

Deadline for Calendar and Art in the Galleries submissions are noon on Thursday, a week before the issue that covers your event. Send an e-mail with event, date, time, location and cost to attend to cal@eugeneweekly.com

Rather than sequestering its old and generally denying the reality of death (like the U.S.), Mexican culture has a rich tradition of embracing, nay, extravagantly celebrating our inevitable demise. Witness the death-in-life folk art of los muertos, carved wooden or clay dioramas that portray skeletons engaging in everyday activities like meals and weddings. All this and so much more will be on display during Maude Kerns Art Center’s Dia de los Muertos: Day of the Dead Exhibit, opening with a fiesta 6-9pm Friday. Pictured is Outlaws Celebration by Anthony Dean Hensley. Exhibit runs through Nov. 6.


Wolfishly womanizing, eternally pickled on gin and brandishing a trademark humor as blue as a monk’s balls, the infamously assholish and impossibly cool Rat Pack — Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Joey Bishop — set the tone for wannabe hip cads everywhere. They were a despicable lot, especially by today’s corrective standards, but for fans, their old-school talent and swinging-dick charm is undeniable. See for your own self when the legendary “Summit at the Sands” is recreated in The Rat Pack is Back, playing 8pm, Friday & Saturday, at Hult Center. $30-$50.



The mission of the Eugene International Film Festival is to “honor filmmakers who inspire, entertain and inform through fact or fiction.” This year, the festival screens more than 75 films from around the globe. Stealing Second, a short film written and directed by UO grad Alex Richanbach, and Politics of Sand, a documentary about access to Oregon’s beaches, come from close to home; other feature-length selections include the documentary Tapped, which looks at efforts to privatize water; 3 Days Blind (pictured), about two brothers coming home to their dysfunctional family; and The Nature of Existence, which asks questions about life, the universe and everything. Films screen at Valley River Center’s Regal Cinemas Oct. 9-11. See www.eugenefilmfest.org and Friday Calendar.
