Synergy–La Onda de la Palabra/Wave of the Word

A team of three artists, Cynthia Cook, Catalina Delgado Trunk and Valerie Martínez, have been working together with past and present members of the homeless community to create art, poetry, and spoken performance. The project began in September 2010 and continues, this spring, with performances, exhibits and public art-making along the streets of Albuquerque on Friday, May 13, 2011 (see schedule below).   The day ends with the opening of the gallery exhibition at the National Hispanic Cultural Center (where the exhibition will reside for a month).
