Jonathan Reeve Price presents an exhibit of digitally altered images of the Rio Grande. One series of images features the San Antonio Oxbow located just south of the Open Space Visitor Center. They show the value of this precious urban-wildlife interface that is under threat from development. Another series of images follows the Rio Grande from El Paso to the Gulf of Mexico, what the artist calls “The Liquid Border.” “These images contrast the beautiful curves of the river, seen from space, with the sharp dangers that migrant face when trying to trek across the river, and through the brutal landscape on the American side.” The exhibit runs through March 29, 2020. For more information call 897-8831.
