Thousands of residents from Greater Santa Fe using blue materials standing in dry riverbed to recreate where the Santa Fe River should be flowing. The snow melt fed Santa Fe River provides 40% of the water for City of Santa Fe. As temperatures rise and the snow pack dwindles, Santa Fe is facing the threat of serious ongoing drought.
The Santa Fe Art Institute presents, supports and nurtures art, ideas and artists at the intersections of the Contemporary Arts and Society through esidencies, lectures, studio workshops, exhibitions and educational outreach.

What: In Santa Fe, thousands of residents dependent on the Santa Fe River for water will fill the dry riverbed with blue materials to create a "flash flood" of people depicting where the Santa Fe should be flowing.
