The City of Santa Fe Children and Youth Commission is pleased to announce the installation of a Teen Photo Wall at Warehouse 21, Santa Fe's Teen Arts Center. Anne Staveley, a local photographer, will install over sixteen photographs using wheat paste, a liquid adhesive made of flour and water. Born in Santa Fe and a graduate of Santa Fe High School and the Rhode Island School of Design, Staveley is a staff photographer for THE Magazine and a working portrait photographer in Santa Fe and around the U.S.

City of Santa Fe Children and youth CommissionThe Photo Wall will be 12 feet tall, installed on the west exterior wall of the Arts Center building, and will depict a wide array of Santa Fe’s youth. Staveley hopes that these larger-than-life images will empower and inspire Santa Fe’s teens. Through these portraits we can recognize that teens are an important part of a vibrant community. The Commission congratulates WH21 for this larger-than-life exhibit that is an alternative to graffiti.
