Land Arts of the American West [LAAW] is an interdisciplinary, field-based studio art program at the University of New Mexico. During the program students travel extensively throughout the Southwest, engaging in a variety of processes and experiences from heritage preservation along the banks of the Rio Grande, to exploring the cultural importance of the contested Bears Ears National Monument. While camping and investigating environmental sites, human habitation systems, questions of ecological justice, and modes of communication, artists—alongside their independent field studies —approached what has been thematically characterized as the “Rights of Nature.” This exhibition features work by the artists—created on site, or in response to their experiences out in the field. 

Opeing Reception is Friday December 8th, at 5pm!
