Artist Rose B. Simpson grew up on the Santa Clara Pueblo in New Mexico where houses are made out of clay mixed with straw. In Dream House, which represents the artist’s life journey, some spaces are shared and some are private. The installation tells the story of her past and present, and creates a space to dream of the future. Bring the family to Smith Playground, where we’ll build and plant for the future by making plantable seed paper houses! All ages welcome.

This event is co-organized with CraftNOW Create in conjunction with Rose B. Simpson: Dream House.
