This Weekend for LAND/ART:

Grasslands / Separating Species
516 ARTS announces two concurrent exhibitions for LAND/ART: Grasslands, featuring the work of Michael P. Berman, and Separating Species, featuring the work of Krista Elrick, Dana Fritz, David Taylor and Jo Whaley. Grasslands explores the endangered Chihuahuan Grasslands of New Mexico, Texas and northern Mexico. Separating Species focuses on animals, humans, the biosphere and the U.S. Mexico border. All of these artists visually investigate what happens when species are separated, whether in the wilderness, in protected wildlife refuges, urban zoos or other artificially created environments, or even across political, economic and cultural borders. Grasslands and Separating Species are curated by Mary Anne Redding, Curator of Photography, Photo Archives, Palace of the Governors/New Mexico History Museum.Saturday, October 3, 2pm
