Giving Growth, An Integrative Art Installation Honoring Place, Time, Community and Relationship
The evening gathers elements of this ongoing project centered on honoring place, time, community, and relationship. Giving Growth is our community art project led by Jamison Chās Banks and Eliza Naranjo Morse. Saya’s Frybread and Indian Tacos will be serving up delicious food, Axle Contemporary will share their current exhibition, and the mind-blowing duo Lindy Vision will perform at 6:30 pm!
The Ralph T. Coe Center for the Arts has partnered with artists Eliza Naranjo Morse and Jamison Chās Banks on the collaborative, community-driven project Giving Growth. This project is centered on not only the need to find a place for healing and hope, but also a home for our collective desire to (re)build relationships, honor our elders and future elders, and share beauty. Giving Growth, as a community art project, is dedicated to elevating and nurturing underrepresented voices, intergenerational sharing and creating, and honoring our sense of place and potential for healthy and sustainable growth in mid-town Santa Fe. Giving Growth is based on the idea of the planting, growing, harvesting, and disseminating of seeds and relationships.
“I can personally identify with the loneliness that the COVID epoch has bestowed upon us all. It is my hope that through this project, our outreach and art can begin to help restore and serve as another example of how vital community and cooperation are.”
—Jamison Chās Banks
The project culminates with a public event at the Coe on August 18th, 2022, 5:30-7:30 pm (free admission, open to all).
