More about the exhibit: Along with activists, artists in southern Arizona are concerned about protecting the Santa Rita Mountains and Cienega Creek from the effects of the proposed Rosemont Mine. "In Seeing the Santa Ritas," artists explore the natural and cultural heritage of the present-day Santa Ritas. The exhibit will include selections from a much larger body of photographic work from "Lens on the Land." The exhibit also features paintings and drawings by faculty at The Drawing Studio and a premier of the film, "Rosemont Ours," created by New Articulations Dance Theatre. Viewers will have the pleasure of savoring the beauty of the Santa Rita landscape while also considering the political and historical significance of its stature in southern Arizona.
