Rio Grande Exhibit 2018
An exhibit entitled“Life Along the Rio Grande” will be on display at the Branigan Cultural Center, 501 N. Main St., from Tuesday, April 3 through June 9.
The exhibit will feature the works of members of the Studio Art Quilt Association (SAQA), a nonprofit organization founded in 1989. The association promotes art quilts, and the artists who create them, in exhibits throughout the world that document the art quilt movement.
Artists living in western U.S. states were asked to create work representing a vast variety of things that are important to the Rio Grande. The river flows through the states of New Mexico, Texas, and Colorado and is a critical water source for the desert region.
There is a variety of living things along the Rio Grande. The work created by SAQA artists explores historical, cultural, scientific, geological, and environmental topics relating to the flora, fauna, and people living near the Rio Grande.
