Colors of Cabo Pulmo is part of a Desert Museum Art Institute Department project titled Project Resurgence. The project documents and celebrates the remarkable work of communities in Baja California and Sonora who work to conserve and restore biodiversity of the Sonoran Desert. The projects specifically showcase original fine art created by selected research artists in residence. The artwork created for Colors of Cabo Pulmo was inspired by the protected marine park’s success story, it’s surrounding desert landscape, and the community’s natural history conservation efforts. The goal of Colors of Cabo Pulmo is to create a memorable narrative that will move people to be more conservation minded and aims to inspire the world to follow in the footsteps of Cabo Pulmo residents. Highlights of the exhibition showcase the processes and techniques of three of the core research artists Andrew Denman, Rachel Ivanyi and Martha Thompson. Other artists and photographers in this exhibition will include Glenn Thompson, and Jake Bryant.
