Arts, Science,'s all better up here.


September 11, 2020 - January 9, 2021

From prolonged drought to flash floods, what are the particularities and paradoxes surrounding water in the American Southwest? Who has rights to water? How is water shared among people, plants and other animals? How do we reconcile diverse cultural and spiritual views of water? Parched: The Art of Water in the Southwest explores the complexity of water in the face of climate change and increasing populations. Nine Arizona-based artists created works, informed by scientific and cultural inquiry, that reflect diverse perspectives and provocative insight into our intricate relationship with water in our natural, cultural, and political landscapes.
