PRESENTATION & PARTY:
Photo360 & PhotoSummer Closing Party
at 516 ARTS
UNM Art Museum, UNM Photography Department and 516 ARTS teamed on a special presentation of new photography work and a closing party for PhotoSummer during Umbrella Week. From 5-6pm, photo faculty Meggan Gould, Patrick Manning, Adrienne Salinger, and Jim Stone presented in a fast-paced and engaging format, which gave each artist 360 seconds to share their creative work.
Then from 6-8pm, the celebration continued with tasty treats from Shut the Chef Up, Tractor Brewing and live music by Cactus Tractor Trio (Christiana Cook, David Bashwiner and Stephanie Graner), a fun Bohemian Pop Folk Disco (beaupop- faux-disc) band based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, offering toothsome harmonies and a multitude of fun stringed and unstrung instruments.
This event was part of PhotoSummer 2016, a collaborative initiative that strives to represent and actively promote historical and contemporary photography in New Mexico. Taking the rich legacy of photography in New Mexico as a point of departure, the exhibitions and public programs around PhotoSummer embody the continued energy and support of the photographic arts in the region. Organized by UNM Art Museum, 516 ARTS and CENTER, PhotoSummer 2016 features a series of exhibitions, talks, workshops and events in Albuquerque and Santa Fe.
