Join us for the opening of Place/Holding, a mobile art exhibition by Brian Fleetwood (Muscogee Creek) in the Railyard (1612 Alcaldesa St, Santa Fe, NM 87501)!

Fleetwood, a Santa Fe resident, artist, and faculty member of the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA), is the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum’s first Mobile Artist in Residence. After several months of collaboration with the Axle Contemporary mobile artspace and the Museum’s Art to G.O. truck, Fleetwood creatively repurposed single-use plastics collected from communities into jewelry and wearable art. The project’s culminating exhibition, Place/Holding hosted by Axle Contemporary, emphasizes inclusivity and highlights the transformative potential of art.
