Past Events

Suminagashi in the Park

Following a successful workshop featuring poetry and suminagashi in Santa Fe’s Railyard Park, Miriam and Isabel will curate the resulting installation piece. We will combine the suminagashi and text, and install it in hidden but findable locations in the Railyard Park. The pathway will be geocached, and locatable by GPS. We will also have maps. The work will be presented anonymously—and the paper and text may have two different authors. All participants will be listed and thanked as part of the pathway, and on this website. There will be an informal opening on September 8th. We’ll tell you when it is up, and you can walk it and share it with your friends. It’s a magical way to respond to a special spot in our city of Santa Fe. We look forward to working with you.
