Inland Sea by Allyson Packer


Join us through social media and other online special events for Inland Sea by Allyson Packer. Inland Sea refers to New Mexico’s geological history and the time in which the desert was a marine environment.  Packer explores urban spaces through photography and digitally removes elements from the documented photographs to allow the viewer to question and envision uninterrupted urban landscape.

Special events related to the exhibit include:
