Plants, Pollinators and Climate Change Mural

The Mimbres Region Arts Council Youth Mural at the corner of Broadway and Texas Street in downtown Silver City is completed! The mural theme, “Plants, Pollinators and Climate Change,” was proposed by SWNM Audubon and designed by Aldo Leopold High School art students, under the direction of teacher Alison Phillips, with input from supporting organizations and based on original photographs by Elroy Limmer. Mimbreño designs bridge past with present, the border consists of blue to red stripes depicting global temperature changes over the last 100 years.

In addition to a highly competitive National Audubon grant of $4500, mural sponsors include Town and Country Garden Club, National Audubon Society’s Coleman and Susan Burke Center for Native Plants, Gila Native Plant Society, SWNMA member Linda Gerritson, Grant County Archaeological Society, and Grant County Beekeepers.
