Atlas of the San Miguel

Exhibition July 30 – August, 2011

Atlas of the San Miguel:  Art, Education, and Community Engagement addressed the shifting ecological, economic, political, and cultural dimensions of the San Miguel Watershed. Organized by Dan Collins and Pam Zoline of the Telluride Institute, the project used art and technology as dual lenses for investigating the San Miguel river basin. The Atlas continues to grow and draws on local knowledge, scientific findings and creative response to craft an artful dialogue specific to the watershed. It is a springboard for visualizing and contemplating water as a cultural reflection, water as energy, as a connecting agent, the control of water, the complexity of water rights, public vs. private water, and water as aesthetic inspiration.
