Peripheral Shelters / 2019 Story Maps Exhibition & Events
SFAI Exhibition Reception / December 13 / 5:30pm—8:30pm / SFAI
Exhibition Dates: December 13 — January 3 / Monday—Friday / 9am-5pm /SFAI
Peripheral Shelters is a week of creative action bringing together artists and community organizations to ask questions about shelter, hope, trust, and system failure within Santa Fe. Presented as part of the Santa Fe Art Institute’s Story Maps Fellowship— in which four artists were paired with local organizations for nine months of dialogue and collaboration —these events seek to center the work being done in our peripheries and the people whose lived experiences are pushed to the margins in this city.
The 2019 Story Maps Fellows
Story Maps Fellows will present their work throughout this week in dialogue with the organizations who have shared their stories with us and alongside other local artists who are integrating radical storytelling and questioning into their work. We invite community members to consider with us the questions that unite Santa Fe organizations doing the work of social justice. We believe that questions (questions without clear answers, without singular, linear answers) can be used to map the common ground between people, groups, and institutions.
Events will include workshops, pop-up exhibitions, installations, and performances at the Santa Fe Dreamers Project, YouthWorks, and the Santa Fe Art Institute.
Santa Fe YouthWorks Installation & Performance / December 10 / 5:30pm / 1504 Cerrillos Rd, Santa Fe

Santa Fe Dreamers Project Pop-Up Exhibition / December 11 / 5:30pm / 1213 Mercantile Rd, Santa Fe
A pop-up exhibition at the Santa Fe Dreamers office will feature work by Story Maps Fellow Hazel Batrezchavez and community artists.
