Charting the Canyon: Photographs by Mark Klett & Byron Wolfe
The Grand Canyon—natural wonder, sacred ground, national park, international tourist attraction—is perhaps the world’s best “photo op.” Vivid colors, breathtaking vistas and jaw dropping canyon depths have lured photographers to Northern Arizona for years. A new exhibition, “Charting the Canyon: Photographs by Mark Klett & Byron Wolfe,” is on view at the Autry National Center from through January 3, 2010. “Charting the Canyon” explores this celebrated place of dramatic beauty with large-scale sweeping panoramas that marry 21st century color photographs with historic drawings and images.

FREE Improv and Acting Class
The instructor is Mark Colson, who is currently in the production of Brendan Behan’s play “The Hostage” at the Banshee Theater in Burbank. Colson was nominated for the Ovation award for his part of ‘Slim’ in last year’s “Of Mice and Men” production, also at the Banshee. He has also been on many TV series, including “Angel,” “Heroes” and “CSI NY” as well as a recurring role on a popular daytime soap.
The class is for all levels of competence. You will learn how to think on your feet which will help you in auditions. We do various forms of skits or inter-activity to teach us how to pay attention and work well with others. The activities change from week to week. You can register in class… just show up and sign up.
