The small town of Clifton is hosting a big-town affair November 2 and 3, at the Colors of Copper Art Show and Wine Tasting.
Wines from some of Arizona’s finest vineyards will be available to enjoy and take home, and guests can take their time admiring the artwork while nibbling on snacks and listening to music.
The art show will showcase a variety of submittals from Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado. Guests will have the opportunity to take part in the judging for the “People’s Choice” best artist award, in addition to the professionally judged awards.
Clinton is located on Highway 191, the Coronado Trail, in Greenlee County. It is a short drive from Silver City, New Mexico, Safford, Wilcox, and other southeastern Arizona communities, and a day trip from Tucson and the Metro Phoenix area.
The town offers a beautiful setting on the San Francisco River, big horn sheep, and a rich historical presence. It is home to the Morenci mine, the largest copper mine in the United States and the second largest employer in Arizona. Owned and operated by Freeport McMoRan Copper and Gold, this facility operates some of the largest mining equipment in the world.
The Colors of Copper Art Show and Wine Tasting is organized by the Business Association of Chase Creek Arizona (BACCA), an organization seeking to promote the Town of Clifton through tourism, enhanced local businesses and the preservation of historic buildings.
The event will take place at Galleria Coronado, 253 Chase Creek Street in Historic Downtown Clifton, Saturday (Nov. 2) from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday (Nov. 3) from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
