A new batch of A-Z West studio weavings are headed to the Whitney Museum shop including this one by @elenadaojingyu . The studio weavings help support our collective resources at A-Z West and generate income for artists local to the High Desert, where employment and means of financial support are limited.⠀⠀
Said goodbye to @simonsixou and @iris.lacoudre today – the last of our work trade residents for the season. Simon and Iris were all-around-great – and very good natured about the high temperatures these last few weeks. (work trade apartments don't have AC ) Best of all they designed and built much needed covers for the compost bin. The covers should help cut down on rodent population which will in turn help with rattlesnake situation.
We're excited to announce that #highdeserttestsites next big event is happening this October 21-22 in and around Joshua Tree! Co-curated by #AramMoshayedi and #SohrabMohebbi, HDTS 2017 will include artist projects, a multi-speaker symposium (with live music!), and an exhibition of our 15 year history; all part of a weekend long desert adventure.
