Santa Fe Art Institute Announces Theme for Next Residency

The Santa Fe Art Institute (SFAI) is pleased to announce Water Rights as its next residency and programmatic theme. Because water is seen, now more than ever, as a contested resource, SFAI is committed to bringing together local, national, and global thinkers and creators to collectively expand and revise our knowledge of what we think we know about water rights. New Mexico is rich in its relationship to water- a position created over a long history of corporate, environmental, political, and multicultural claims to this essential resource.
