This week on The Local Show, we take a look at the performance many people missed at the grand opening of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. We attend a Mental Health First Aid class at the Bert Nash Center. We see an excerpt from the documentary Voces del Pasado. We speak with Rene Aguirre from Ñ Magazine, a publication devoted to the Spanish-speaking community in the metro. And we give you a look at some art with a very large message.
