Maya Avina and Trisha Fernandez, two of the artists responsible for Shelter: Beauty, Sustainability, Function a collaborative, interactive exhibit featuring an eco-village residential model will be on hand to discuss their work. "SK Cothren will be there," says Dawn DiPrince, associate director at Sangre de Cristo. "She has a junk-mail block that people will be able to manipulate and interact with," notes DiPrince; that's part of Cothren's Captured Earth display.

Pisciotta (Nature on the Grid) will also be in attendance.
