Rio Compartido/Shared River: Reception for Artists and Art of the Santa Cruz River
December 17 from 1:00PM – 3:00PM
Historic Lowe House, Tubac Arizona
The public is invited to meet the first round of bi-national artists participating in the Rio Compartido/Shared River exhibit, which focuses 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, Abraham Limon Guzman, and Angela Gervasi, a former Border Community Alliance summer intern from Philadelphia, will perform and present work they have produced highlighting the interweave and complexities of this bi-national waterway. This first round of resident artists is being made possible with a grant from the Arizona Humanities Council.
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 in October, 2019. Rio Compartido/Shared River is a collaboration of The Lowe House Project artist in residency program and the Friends of the Santa Cruz River.
