People in traditional Indigenous attire walk through a grassy field

April's lineup of film, festivals, art, and theater pay homage to the great outdoors

April 19-20

In the third installment of this yearly gathering, 2024’s Powwow for the Planet — hosted by the UNLV Native American Alumni Club, the Native American Student Association, the American Indian Alliance, and the urban Indigenous community — isn’t to be missed. Traditional Indigenous craft vendors, dances, music, and educational opportunities round out the entertainment aspect of this event, while all being underpinned by a strong message of environmental advocacy.

Hours on Saturday are 4 to 8 p.m. and on Sunday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on UNLV’s Chem Lawn.

April 12-20

The tension of teenage suburban living is perfectly encapsulated in Eric Bogosian’s SubUrbia, the story of a group of aimless 20-somethings whose world is turned upside down by a visit from their old high school classmate, who is now a successful musician. A word of warning for the FOMO-stricken: This play promises to not only resonate, but also inspire some good old introspection.

April 13-14

Squeeze a wee bit of fun into your weekend with this annual festival from the Las Vegas Celtic Society. Live bagpipe and drum music, athletic competitions, Irish dancing, beer gardens, food and goods vendors, and a hearty dose of the Highlands await — all clans welcome.

April 14

If the title hasn’t clued you in on what this new film, directed by Mike Cheslik, is all about, then allow me to elaborate: Hundreds of beavers conspire against 19th century applejack salesman Jean Kayak, who must outwit them all to escape a frosty winter landscape. Live action, irreverent, and somewhat Home Alone-esque in its commitment to slapstick gags, the film is followed by a recording of the Piecing it Together podcast, hosted by David Rosen, with filmmaker Michael Keene, actress Tia Bean, and film buff Michael-Patrick Coleman joining.

Through April 20

Few can sum up an artist's inspiration better than the artist themself. For William Ruller, his north star is his hometown of Gloversville, New York, which he uses as a "visual metaphor for the issues that modernity has caused to the environment in contemporary times. The abandoned mills and tanneries of my youth and the dilapidated areas of metropolitan and rural sites, with its rust grey tones, inform the visual and aesthetic language present in my work." This is evident in any one of his paintings, featuring blurred strokes in muted color palettes, a selection of which will be on display at CSN through April 20.

A special Virtual Artist Talk with Ruller will also take place on April 18, starting at 6 p.m.
