|A native of Tucson, Heather Green has grown up frequenting her family’s beach cabin in La Cholla, a headland near Puerto Peñasco, Mexico. Her projects and installations examine the communal and ecological narratives of this region, exploring and paying homage to peripheral or even vanishing places and species whose delicate survival depends on our awareness of them. The collaborative nature of many of her projects and commissions has led her to work with a diverse range of individuals including poets, scientists and fishermen.
Green is a recipient of the 2011 Arizona Commission on the Arts Artist Project Grant, the 2010 Community Foundation of Southern Arizona/Buffalo Exchange Arts Award, and the Oregon College of Art & Craft Emerging Artist Residency in book arts. Her work has been shown nationally and internationally in exhibitions at Espacio Cultural Contemporáneo in Montevideo, Uruguay, Museo de Culturas Indigenas Sonorense in Hermosillo, México, Center of Book Arts in New York, Mesa Contemporary Arts, the Tucson Museum of Art as well as in galleries both regionally and across the United States. Green earned both her BFA (1995) and her MFA (2008) from the University of Arizona, and is currently an Instructor at Northern Arizona University.
