Alicia Marie Rencountre – Da Silva’s new installation, titled Song to Water, was completed on-site today at IAIA’s Museum of Contemporary Native Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It is a contemplative piece set within a sculpture alcove at the museum. The artist created a willow hoop hung with prayer ties. Materials are provided for visitors to create additional prayer ties, which the artist will then add to the framework. During regular operating hours, the installation also includes a sound element: a collaborative song by the artist and musician Daniel John Pauli.
