Arizona-based artist Mayme Kratz has made it a practice to find art in what some might see as nothing more than barren desert. Her three-dimensional creations highlight the interconnectedness of nature, space, and the creative spirit.

This month, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art will host screenings of a Mayme Kratz documentary, Mayme Kratz/Stand Still, along with the short film Tumbleweed Bower-Mayme Kratz.
