In 1880, about 90 miles southeast of Tuscon on the US-Mexico Border, a copper, gold, and silver mining town was founded. Bisbee obviously evolved over the years from mining to now being known as an artist-community, with hertiage buildings and stunning setting amongst the Mule Mountains. And now, since 2019, it is the home of the Artemizia Foundation, a contemporary, graffiti and street art museum, gallery, created and founded by Sloane Bouchever. We sat down with Sloane to talk about the unique city in the southwest, his love of street art, what the Foundation’s goals are and an upcoming project with one of our favorite artists, Swoon.
