“No Swimming Until Further Notice”
a photographic exhibition by emily payne


See press release and image below:


Cantina Lounge is pleased to host a photo-documentary exhibition calling attention to the damaged ecosystem in Baja California due to lack of clean water. The exhibition juxtaposes the stripped down beauty of the land with the imminent destruction of important ecosystems that affect the livelihood of local people.


The exhibition is a result of a recent trip to Baja California led by the Sonoran Institute and a team of Environmental Law Students from New College of California School of Law. The Sonoran Institute provided comprehensive education to the students about issues surrounding water in this area, and facilitated steps to rehabilitate the land, create an eco camp and provide hope for rebirth of indigenous plants and animals.


The opening reception will function as a fundraiser to assist the Sonoran Institute to continue to raise awareness about this dire issue. Refreshments and drink specials will be available. All photographs are available for purchase. Four framed photographs and donated gifts will be auctioned on April 3rd including massage packages, floral arrangements and more. All donations and silent auction proceeds will be donated to the Sonoran Institute and the Environmental Law Caucus at New College of California School of Law.
