Old Nogales Highway

Bill Mackey is an architect, artist, and educator living and working in Tucson. He received a “New Works” grant from the Arts Foundation for Tucson and Southern Arizona in 2016 to work on a project about the “Old Nogales Highway.” The road was once a direct route to the town of Nogales and the international border, but I-19 now takes over near Green Valley. This story documents Mackey’s trips down the road and his investigations into it’s landscape over a six-month period. The text is a collaboration between Bill Mackey, Tracy Pitt, Nancy Pitt, Mike Powell and Neil Saunders.
