Wilderness Acts 2018 exhibition explores the relationship between art and nature, creates awareness of our local natural resources, and promotes wetland and ecological conservation.
Thirteen artists have created ephemeral sculptural artworks using natural wild-crafted materials in various sites throughout Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve in La Cienega. Work was created during the months leading up to September 2018 and will be on view at the preserve throughout the months of September and October. This is the third iteration of the Wilderness Acts, which began in 2014.
The mobile gallery will exhibit in public spaces around Santa Fe and visit local schools (elementary, high-school and university) where the curators and participating artists will speak about the exhibition and related topics to the students.
