Rio Compartido/Shared River Santa Cruz River Binational Waterways Exhibit October 15 – November 30, 2019

The Lowe House Project celebrates this juried exhibition of work from Arizona residents and non-residents at the Lowe House. The Santa Cruz River, shared both in the United States and Mexico, is the focus of the artwork and artists will be from both sides of the Border.

This exhibition will run concurrently with the traveling Smithsonian Waterways Exhibition held at the Tubac Presidio State Historic Park.

Participating artists are encouraged to participate in the educational programs being scheduled such as hikes, tours, lectures, classes and visits to public parks and museums. These programs are intended to expand the awareness of the habitat, history and cultural heritage of the Upper Santa Cruz River basin. For more information on the educational events contact Nancy Valentine, Lowe House Project Coordinator at [email protected]

Accepted artists will develop a body of work or works in any medium for potential inclusion in the exhibit.

Rio Compartido/Shared Rivers program is being made possible with assistance from AZ Humanities and Santa Cruz Community Foundation, Friends of the Santa Cruz River and Walking Sticks Hiking Club.


The exhibition is curated by Barbara Kuzara, [email protected] (U.S.) and Ricardo Santos Hernandez, [email protected].
