The Drawing Studio program gets NEA grant

For the second time in three years, The Drawing Studio has received a $20,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

One of only three “Learning in the Arts” awards in Arizona, the grant will fund the studio’s summer immersion program in the visual arts for youth and teens. According to a news release, students in the program spend full days or half days painting and drawing, sculpting (clay, metals, paper, wire), printmaking, experimenting with combining media, and more. The summer culminates in an August exhibition of student work in The Drawing Studio Gallery.

Bachmann writes mystery

A local woman has written a mystery set in the Old Pueblo.

“Obedient Till Death: Waiting for an Order” (PublishAmerica) by Marlene Bachmann tells of what happens after a boy finds a pile of dead greyhound racing dogs on top of a body in the abandoned quarry near “A” Mountain.

“The investigation widens into Mexico and back east to Kansas. Together homicide and narcotic officers uncover plots from drug-running to terrorism, and shed light on the atrocities behind the scenes of greyhound racing,” publicity materials say.

Bachmann is a graduate of Tucson High School and worked in the Tucson Police Department’s communications division.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
