El Agua es Vida: Acequias in New Mexico, merges art, science and cultural tradition to explore the fundamental role acequias play in the environment and the community in northern New Mexico. Based in a groundbreaking multidisciplinary study conducted by the New Mexico State University, University of New Mexico, New Mexico Tech and Sandia Labs, the exhibition investigates the acequia system of water delivery and management in generating, transforming and sustaining the landscape. Some researchers apply the term “hydrosocial cycle” to illuminate the concept of water as inseparable from a human or social context.
The opening celebration will include brief presentations by researchers Sylvia Rodriguez, José Rivera, Alexander Fernald and Paula Garcia; music of northern New Mexico by Cipriano Vigil; acequia poetry by Shirley Blackwell, and local food by Los Poblanos and Cornelio Candelaria Organics. The event is free and open to all.
