Talk - 'The Hydro-Aesthetics of the Mexico City Water System: From the Cája de Agua to the Cárcamo, 1900-1952'

Jeffery Banister of the UA Southwest Center and Department of Geography and Stacie Widdifield of the School of Art and Center for Latin American Studies will discuss their research regarding a project being developed with U.S. and Mexican scholars that analyzes the visual/artistic aspects of the Mexico City water system in Chapultepec Park and Xochimilco. Graduate students in art history (Jennifer Báez), studio art (Karen Declouet and Dwayne Manuel), and history (Anabel Galindo, William Heydenreich, and María Concepción Márquez Sandoval) also will be on hand to discuss their research from a related Art History seminar, "Waterworks," held in spring.
