ART | ECO: Placemaking Patagonia leverages the arts to expand the Tucson Audubon Society's Paton Center for Hummingbirds' legacy of public access while strengthening the town of Patagonia's identity as an arts and eco sanctuary by developing arts-driven infrastructure and interpretive materials. University of Arizona architects and Patagonia artists join forces with Tucson Audubon's conservation team to bring this vision to life.  This project also evolves the design and arts-media aspect of Borderlands Restorations' Earth Care Youth Institute (BECY).
