Ajo Arts Weekend

FY 2018-2019

Project: “Ajo Arts Weekend: Community Arts Residency and Street Art Happening”


Ajo Arts Weekend is a massive artist residency that invites muralists and community-engaged performing artists into the small former mining town of Ajo, Arizona. These artists activate the historic town center through the Street Art Happening and a series of interactive performances. The event represents a collaboration among the Ajo Street Art Project, the International Sonoran Desert Alliance, and the National Performance Network.


Pictured is the culminating event of Ajo Arts Weekend – the community-wide potluck.
