Virga: Beneath the Sierra sin Agua
September 17, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Coconino Center for the Arts is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition Virga: Beneath the Sierra sin Agua by Flagstaff artist Shawn Skabelund. Virga is a series of sculptural installations exploring the foundations of historical colonialism within territorial Arizona, and the lasting emotional and physical scars on the cultural and geographical western landscape. Virga: Beneath the Sierra sin Agua follows Skabelund’s 2013 exhibition Virga: the Hunt for Water, which was awarded Creative Flagstaff’s Viola Award for Excellence in the Visual Arts. Virga: Beneath the Sierra sin Agua is supported by a generous gift from Dr. Gerald Smith, Emeritus Professor of Evolutionary Ichthyology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and a grant from the Puffin Foundation, Ltd.
