The Verde River
An Artist’s Adventure

June 14 – November 30, 2014
Terminal 2, entry way and three display cases pre-security

White Cliffs of the Verde Officially designated Wild and Scenic, the Verde River is one of Arizona’s last free-flowing rivers. Located in central Arizona, the Verde not only provides riparian habitats for an abundant, diverse wildlife population it also supplies the city of Phoenix with 30% of its water helping to make life in the desert possible for humans. The Verde River offers recreational opportunities, including hiking, bird-watching, fishing and kayaking and its lush scenery is a source of endless inspiration to artists.

To increase awareness and conservation of the Verde River Corridor, Verde Valley Land Preservation, an Arizona nonprofit, challenged visual artists to participate in a river experience, gain inspiration and create artworks to share with the public.

This exhibition features artworks by nine nature-loving artists that took the challenge, spending three-days rafting and camping along the River. Their paintings, drawings and prints are evidence of their emotional connection with the natural world and their Verde River adventure.
