Across the Great Divide: A Visual Journey Through Time and Space
Friday, August 16th
Experience history coming to life when Roberta Price brings to life, Across the Great Divide: A Visual Journey Through Time and Space to the Communes of Northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado, Friday, August 16 at 7 p.m., in the Little Theatre.
This program is about the utopian experiments that took root in New Mexico in the late 1960s and 1970s by an academic observer who later became an observing participant. Roberta Price photographed in New Mexico and Southern Colorado from 1969-1977. Her photos show houses and domes being constructed, community activities, gardening, commune schools, artwork and crafts, and vignettes of everyday life.
Roberta Price is a writer and intellectual property attorney in Albuquerque. Following graduation from Vassar in 1968, she became a teaching fellow in the SUNY at Buffalo graduate English program where she received a grant to photograph communes in the Southwest. She graduated from the University of New Mexico School of Law in 1983 and began a successful law career defending intellectual property rights, representing Southwestern artists and Native American tribes on intellectual property and cultural issues, including the Zia Pueblo’s fight to protect its sacred sun symbol from commercial use. Her work has been published internationally in several sources.
The Chautauqua performances are free and funded by the San Juan College Foundation, and presented by the San Juan College Encore Program, KSJE 90.9 FM, and the New Mexico Humanities Council.
