Victoria has graced the Santa Fe Botanical Garden with her painted totemic Spirit Poles that speak with a primal power emerging from the cold, clear New Mexico winter landscape. One hundred and fifty Spirit Poles are set into position in the Ojos y Manos: Eyes and Hands Garden and lit with laser lights in to enliven the spirit of this holiday. Her installation is a garden of colorful plantings that illuminate the winter garden with a rainbow of bright beings. Victoria calls this her version of Zero-Scaping … Plants that can grow in any environment and never need water to stay perpetually in bloom!

He sells his artwork at the Heard Museum Guild Indian Market in Phoenix, Prescott Indian Art Market, Native Treasures Indian Arts Festival, and the Santa Fe Indian Market. He has exhibited his laser work around the country and recently in Dubai.

Students and teachers at the Santa Fe Waldorf School have come together to create “Cat’s Cradle,” an out-of-this-world installation in the Orchard Garden. The installation is the culmination of a school-wide competition, held in the spring of 2018. It was inspired by this year’s theme for GLOW, ‘Cosmic Nights!’
