Rio Compartido/Shared River –Introductions to Artists and Art of the Santa Cruz River
December 17 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
The public is invited to this meet and greet and presentation of artwork by the first round of bi-national artists participating in the exhibit focusing on the Borderlands cultural and environmental heritage of the Santa Cruz River –a waterway shared by both Mexico and the United States. Mexican artists Elena Vega and Abraham Limon Guzman and former Border Community Alliance summer intern from Philadelphia, Angela Gervasi, will perform and present work they have produced during their artist residencies highlighting the interweave and complexities of this Borderlands bi-national waterway. Their work and that of other artists will be included in an exhibit at the Historic Lowe House as a complementary event during the traveling Smithsonian Institute’s WaterWays exhibit scheduled for the Tubac Presidio State Historic Park October 1, 2019. Rio Compartido/Shared River is a collaboration between the Lowe House Project artist in residency program and the Friends of the Santa Cruz River. The first round of artist residencies is being made possible with a grant from Arizona Humanities. The special presentation will be held at the Lowe House Project, 14 Calle Iglesia, Old Town Tubac.
