First Friday January 2021
Hi everyone. It's First Friday again: January, 2021. We thought: new year - new host. So my name is Atticus, and on behalf of Bootheel Artists' Council - in proud collaboration with Lordsburg Hidalgo-County Chamber of Commerce and Lordsburg Municipal Schools - welcome! And thank you so much for being here, for your time, for tuning in as we share and celebrate the abundance of skills and passions and talents and experiences here in Hidalgo County.
We've got a great show for you tonight. It's a full program: We're going to start off with a new segment, "Guest Star from Afar." Ms. Cody Riggers will introduce herself, and you'll get to hear her flawless voice alongside Jess Mesa's impeccable voice, despite the two of them being on opposite sides of the country.
After that, we'll see some artwork from the mixed-media portfolio of Taylor Cano, local artisan and First Friday sponsor. After we see that, we're gonna hear from the missionaries at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, an angelic ensemble that they've put together - thank you for your submissions, guys. Next up on the program, more artwork - this time from the 11th grade environmental science students in Mrs Hawley's class. We'll feature their Build-a-Beast projects, and I'm excited for that. By popular demand next on the program is a new duet by Maya Olivas and Jess Mesa, and then headlining for us tonight Ariana Tovar is going to debut her vocal and ukulele talents. Jess and I also recorded a piece, so we'll throw that in at the end.
Full program tonight! Thank you again for tuning in. Let's get started right away and I'll have Cody introduce herself: Hi everyone! My name is Cody Riggers, I'm here in Connecticut. Me and Jessica have been best friends since high school through a fun summer program and through college. I'm so excited to be singing with Jess for this month's Guest Star from Afar. I hope you all like our song. Happy January! Hey peeps! This is Mrs Hawley, the science teacher at Lordsburg High School.
Weird that a science teacher is involved in a community video about art, I know, but chemical reactions and experiments aren't the only ways to "do science." In fact, this year instead of a traditional midterm exam, which I'm sure my students appreciated, I tasked my 11th grade environmental science students with a project that blended science with art. Throughout our unit, students learned about how populations can adapt and change over time in response to environmental conditions. They put their knowledge to the test by creating an ideal "beast" that could survive in an environment full of different challenges. Students designed their organism by combining multiple different adaptations, some of which can be found on Earth, while others show the true creative nature that can come out of a high schooler's brain.
The project included making drawings - either on paper or, for the first time ever, digitally this year - of the new species they created, as well as writing a creative story describing what it would be like to spend a day in their beast's shoes. And I'm excited to share their hard work, creativity, and - dare I say? - enjoyment with all of you First Friday viewers. Thank you so much for watching! Hi, my name is Ari, i play the ukulele, and today i'm going to be doing "Truth Hurts" by Lizzo. Thank you very much for watching! Hi everyone.
Happy 2021! The following is a composition that Jess and I have scored for mandolin, viola, and piano. We call it "Still Crazy Fly." It's a mashup; see if you can spot all the songs. We hope you like it. Oh, hey! Didn't see you there! How's it going? Jose Ortiz here from Phantom Fireworks in Road Forks. I just wanted to let you guys know, we are still open.

Thank you to our contributors, to our collaborators, and our sponsors, and thank you very much for watching. Before we go tonight, I'd like to show you a little teaser trailer of a virtual game night that we hosted recently: We're working on making it a regular thing. If you're interested in participating or helping produce it, please reach out to us: We'd love to collaborate with you. So we'll show you that, but have a safe and warm January, and we'll see you next month! welcome everybody thanks, Tony contestants this month are miss Cody Riggers uh Mr. Jason
