Lowe House Project Introduces First Round of Bi-National Artists and Art of the Santa Cruz River for Rio Compartido/Shared River Project.

The public is invited to a meet and greet and presentation of artwork by the first round of bi-national artists participating in an exhibit focusing on the Borderlands cultural and environmental heritage of the Santa Cruz River on December 17, 2017, at the Lowe House Project artist residency program in Old Town Tubac from 1:00PM – 3:00PM.

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 highlighting the interweave and complexities of this Borderlands bi-national waterway shared by both Mexico and the United States.

Rio Compartido/Shared River is a collaboration of The Lowe House Project artist in residency and the Friends of the Santa Cruz River and is being made possible in part with a grant from the Arizona Humanities.
