Art Exhibition: We Are Still Here

November 16, 2019 - Phoenix, AZ

Audubon Arizona, along with Medio Completo artists and the Gila River Indian Community’s Huhugam Heritage Center, was selected as one of five teams to win the Water Public Art Challenge.

Our team, called Vesich eth ve:m (All of Us Together), completed an art installation and experience called We Are Still Here.

We Are Still Here weaves stories of Huhugam history and continued connection to the river, recent human migration leading to the growth of the Salt and Gila River Valley, and the birds and wildlife who depend on these rivers, into a multi-disciplinary, experiential art event. The show will empower a community conversation about our complex history with these rivers, our water future, and one another. Expect soundscapes, sculptures, murals, film projections, bookmaking, and performances.
