"Dolores Huerta: Revolution in the Fields/Revolucón en los Campos"
Debuting at the California Museum, “Dolores Huerta: Revolution in the Fields / Revolución en Los Campos” is a new traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian Institution exploring the life and legacy of the legendary Latina activist who broke barriers for more than six decades, starting with her work advocating for farm workers’ rights in the 1960s and 1970s. Inspired by the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery’s exhibition “One Life: Dolores Huerta,” the bilingual touring exhibition includes reproductions of historic photographs, a smart phone audio tour app and a documentary video. As part of the inaugural installation, the California Museum’s presentation features hands-on civic engagement activities and supplemental artifacts on loan from Huerta’s personal collection and other institutions further illustrating her ground-breaking but often overlooked achievements and the history of California’s farm worker movement. On view Mar. 9 through July 7, 2019 – only at the California Museum in downtown Sacramento. Open Tues. - Sat. 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. and Sun. 12:00-5:00 p.m. Admission: $7-9.

Comedy, Play, Talks/Lectures
"Hand to God"
Sierra Stages begins its 11th Season with the dark comedy “Hand to God” by Robert Askins, playing through March 16. After the death of his father, meek Jason finds an outlet for his anxiety at the Christian Puppet Ministry, in the devoutly religious, relatively quiet small town of Cypress, Texas. Jason’s complicated relationships with the town pastor, the school bully, the girl next door, and—most especially—his mother are thrown into upheaval when Jason’s puppet, Tyrone, takes on a shocking and dangerously irreverent personality all its own. “Hand to God” explores the startlingly fragile nature of faith, morality, and the ties that bind us. Warning: “Hand to God” is not for those who are easily offended by raw language, adult and sexual situations, unconventional religious themes, and violence. Tickets may be purchased with no additional charge online at www.SierraStages.org and over the phone by calling 530.346.3210. Tickets may also be purchased at the door, subject to availability, including $15 Student Rush tickets.
