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.

Former TPD employee 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.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
