Favorites of the season from the area's art and entertainment offerings.



Coconino Center for the Arts, 2300 N. Fort Valley Rd.

Viola Award-winning artist Bryan David Griffith is back with a new exhibition, "Watershed." "Watershed" explores the impact of development and climate change on Flagstaff’s land and water. Designed specifically for the Coconino Center for the Arts, Griffith gathered seasonal plants, dyes, pigments and wood from lands at the edge of Flagstaff’s growth boundary and incorporated them into a series of earthy, ethereal works that combine experimental painting, primitive photography and sculpture. "Watershed" is on display through Nov. 13. The gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Visit for more information.

OCT. 23-24 


Museum of Northern Arizona, 3101 N. Fort Valley Rd.

Dia de Los Muertos or Day of the Dead is an ancient holiday celebrating the memories of ancestors. Traditionally, it's considered the day the souls of the departed return to visit the living. The Museum of Northern Arizona marks this day each year with a lively two-day event known as Celebraciones de la Gente. The historic courtyard is lined with ofrendas, each telling the story of a Flagstaff Hispanic pioneer family and sweetly-scented flowers line the site, guiding the departed back. This year, the traditional event takes on a special meaning in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nuestras Raices will create a community ofrenda and give visitors a chance to commemorate their own loved ones that have passed with photos or mementos. Plus, there will be mariachi music and dancing, alongside traditional treats. Visit for more information.
