Spanish television journalist Beatriz Limon Gutierrez, from Spain’s international news agency EFE, was at Arcosanti this week with her cameraman filming a story about the project, about Paolo Soleri’s work, and about our upcoming exhibition at SMOCA / the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, which will open Friday, October 13 and run through the end of January. EFE is the major multimedia news agency in Spanish and the world’s fourth largest wire service after the Associated Press, Reuters, and Agence France-Presse.
Beatriz spent the morning with Cosanti CoPresident Jeff Stein AIA and with Arcosanti resident, chef, and chief of the High Desert Museum and Visitor’s Center at Cordes Junction, Lance Cope. Prior to his years at Arcosanti, Lance spent much of his professional career in South America, and thus is a fluent Spanish speaker, a plus, of course, for Spanish TV. In fact, we have the capability at Arcosanti for tours in several languages, and our residents from several countries are often called upon to give tours to groups from other countries. Watch for us on EFE later this fall!
