Being stuck on campus for spring break can be a bummer, so why not get off campus and go have an adventure at the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. The park is approximately a 40 minute drive from campus and is a little over an hour hike. The hike is pretty easy, but dogs are not allowed so leave your furry friends at home. I would recommend good walking shoes, a light jacket, a water bottle, a snack and sun screen because remember you are about 5,570 feet to 6,760 feet above sea level. Spring break would be the perfect time to go explore this enchanting landmark and be reminded of how amazing New Mexico can...

Stepping into the warm gallery full of smiling faces on the evening of Oct. 30 was far from spooky—even with Halloween right around the corner. Bold colors and shining metal hang from the walls inside Janine Contemporary with admirers all around. Don Kennell, a former College of Santa Fe professor, is the mastermind behind the intricate metal work. Alongside Kennell is his right hand man, Zach Greer; they work together out of Kennell’s backyard studio. They’ve been working for months to create a gallery’s worth of top-notch work and they did not disappoint. A theme throughout ‘Truth & Beauty’ is animals and more specifically, birds. These large birds mostly made from steel, sheet metal or found signs are quite impressive. A personal favorite of Kennell’s is a smaller steel bird with accents of a deep red auto lacquer titled “Ruby.” It’s no coincidence Kennell has a daughter named Ruby and is also quite the family man. A crowd favorite is a piece titled “Composition.” The piece is made up of four separate puzzle pieces of welded steel, gears, chains and other car parts. Each of the four pieces also includes a main element of either a violin, bird, fish or turtle. “It was just one of those pieces that I didn’t know if it would work or not and it ends up being one of the best,” says Kennell. “I’m proud of it, that’s for sure.” One of Kennell’s more popular works is the Blue Gorilla that was set up in Santa Fe’s Railyard Park for a few weeks in February of 2015 before being relocated to the Philadelphia Zoo. Another one of Kennell’s more widely known pieces is Big Bear. After being commissioned by Coachella Music Festival, Kennel, Greer, and some other helping hands constructed the 20’ x 20’ x 15’ giant using steel, LED lights, glass eyes, a disco ball and a painted porch swing. It’s safe to say that Kennell’s work is inspiring for students and intriguing for all. See more at...
