Smithsonian Museum traveling exhibit, "Between Fences," comes to Ajo

[Source: June Nickell, ISDA] -- The International Sonoran Desert Alliance (ISDA) received a grant from the Arizona Humanities Council to host a Museum on Main Street exhibition organized by the Smithsonian Traveling Exhibition Service entitled "Between Fences." The regional show will include works by artists from Ajo and surrounding area, the Tohono O'odham Nation and Sonoyta and Puerto Penasco, Mexico. "Between Fences" tells American stories through diverse fence types, and in doing so, examines human relationships on an expanding scale: neighbor versus neighbor, gated communities, and the Mexican and Canadian borders of the United States. The exhibition runs through January 20, 2008. FREE. Curley School Auditorium, Ajo, Arizona. For more information, call 520-387-6823.
