RAIN, SNOW OR SHINE EXHIBIT
High Desert Museum
From rain to shine to snow to hail, weather plays a large role in how we live our everyday lives. It affects how we dress, our daily activities, the crops we grow, work we do and water we use. How do we know what the weather will be? To understand it we need know about seasons, weather patterns, how to forecast weather and the impacts it has on our environment.

EXHIBIT OPENING: TOUGH BY NATURE: PORTRAITS OF COWGIRLS AND RANCH WOMEN OF THE AMERICAN WEST
High Desert Museum
Tough By Nature showcases Artist Lynda Lanker’s passion for the American West and the women who have shaped it. Once dominated by ranches and agriculture, the West has been tamed and transformed through settlement and corporate development. This exhibition honors the spirit and stories of ranch women and cowgirls who gain their sustenance and earn their livelihood from the land. Though her work, Lanker documents a vanishing way of life that affirmed the role of women in the economy and ecology of the West.

IN MY LIFE – A MUSICAL THEATRE TRIBUTE TO THE BEATLES AT TOWER THEATRE
7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Almost everyone knows that The Beatles are one of the most acclaimed bands in rock and roll history because their music has the hypnotic qualities that made teenage girls scream and artists today and yesterday cite them as one of their influences.
While many of us don’t have the opportunity to see the two surviving Beatles Paul McCartney or Ringo Starr live in concert these days, the closest thing to watching an actual Beatles concert will be In My Life – A Musical Theatre Tribute to the Beatles, which returns to the Tower Theatre on Tuesday, October 13 at 7:30 pm. The show played to a capacity audience at this theatre in 2013.
9:00 am – 5:00 pm
High Desert Museum
Seniors 65 years and older are invited to enjoy the Museum for free on this day of special programs.
