Jessica Helen Lopez


Nationally recognized slam poet Jessica Helen Lopez made the Southwest Books of the Year list with her first collection of poetry and she is the new Poet Laureate of Albuquerque. Jessica shares her inspiration and a performance.

“I want to talk more about the personalized story versus the abstract, kind of headline, glossy vocabulary.”

Jonathan Latiano


Installation artist Jonathan Latiano creates works with themes of evolution and extinction.

“I like this pairing of art and science, specifically fields of science that deal with fields of large expanses of time.”

Paul Bialas


Photographer Paul Bialas records what the workers of the iconic Wisconsin breweries left behind.

“Just walking into that room for the first time and seeing what was there and what could be saved on film and the story it told, to me, was an amazing, amazing thing.”

Heimrad Bäcker

Austrian artist Heimrad Bäcker dedicated his life to documenting the remnants of Nazism and the holocaust.

“Bäcker was always a poet and a photographer at the same time.”
