Courney M. Leonard to participate as a Local Artist In Residence at the Santa Fe Art Institute as a part of their WATER RIGHTS thematic residency

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.
