While Conde isn’t originally from Albuquerque, he came to UNM to study paleontology and says the river left a large impact on him. “The river itself is an inspiration to everyone in Albuquerque and it’s a place of respite that I enjoy and I found writing while being near the river restorative,” says Conde.

The exhibit opened Saturday and runs through April 19.
