Connections: Earth + Artist A Tribute Art Show in Resistance to Desert Rock

June 22 - September 28, 2008

In December 2006, the Elders, with the help of Elouise Brown, set up a grassroots resistance camp called Doodá Desert Rock in opposition to the third coal-fired power plant to be established in the Four Corners region. Translated simply, this says "No Desert Rock." The camp sits on a desert mesa near the location proposed for the power plant. To the passing traveler, the area looks desolate and dry, yet it holds many natural underground springs, and traditional sacred sites for prayer and ceremonies.

Curated by Venaya Yazzie, this juried exhibition featured work that unites artists with the community in resistance to Desert Rock. To read the entire exhibition statement, click here.
