Land Arts of the American West [LAAW] artists, in collaboration with the Santa Fe Art Institute and Water Rights Residents, will present a one night participatory event where Water itself has rights as a living organism. Through the creation of a visual and interactive performance these artists will investigate how water sinuously cycles from place to place and hand to hand. We invite the public to participate in our performance on Thursday, December 15, 2016, 7pm-9pm to exchange their stories about water.
Performance: Thursday, December 15, 2016, 7pm- 9pm
Where: Santa Fe Art Institute, 1600 St. Michaels Dr, Santa Fe, NM, 87505

Santa Fe Art Institute (SFAI) is a cultural organization that seeks to address a critical question: how can SFAI cultivate creative practices (from fine art to design to urban planning and beyond), engage with diverse communities, and address the most pressing social issues of our time?

Land Arts of the American West, at the University of New Mexico, is an ongoing experiment and interdisciplinary model for creative and critical arts pedagogy based in place. This program puts students in direct contact with place of the American Southwest through Field Investigations, Research, Creative Production, and Public Presentation/Dissemination. During the program, students travel extensively throughout the Southwest for up to 50 days, while camping and investigating environmental sites, human habitation systems, and questions facing the region.
