SoA faculty member Beth Weinstein's work will be documented in UA Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry's new book Ground | Water: The Art, Design, and Science of a Dry River. The book is the first in a series titled Beyond Boundaries and is the result of her work with Ellen McMahon (School of Art), Ander Monson (Creative Writing faculty), a Confluence Center Grant, and the critical issues seminar + studios she taught on water issues.

A work of art in itself, this publication brings together a diverse community of artists and scientists interested in understanding and raising public awareness about local water and its relationship to global climate. This 112-page, full color, 9” x 9” volume, with letterpress printed hard cover, features collaborations with the Rillito River Project, a Tucson-based arts group, as well as photographs, graphic design, architectural proposals, artist books, essays and poems by University faculty and students. This ode to a dry river is an experiment in making something desecrated and overlooked both beautiful and understandable and carries a strong message about community and responsibility.
The book launch is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov 14th, 5:30 pm-7:00 pm at Playground Bar & Lounge 278 E Congress St.
