Enjoy the Desert Grasslands exhibition and get inspired to create your own work of art. Local artist Kate Hodges will share information about the outdoor art education programs offered at The Land With No Name Sanctuary For Homeless Sculpture located in the high desert grasslands in the Sierrita mountains southwest of Tucson.

Then, Tohono O’Odham artist Thomasa Rivas will demonstrate native basket weaving and help students create their own woven sample using local desert grasses. Hodges will then work with students to create a mandala tapestry using the woven samples and other mixed media. Picture This! is made possible by the David and Lura Lovell Foundation.
