Boyce Thompson Arboretum Exhibit – 'Images to Remember: The Magma Copper Company Smelter at Superior'
In collaboration with Resolution Copper, the UA's Boyce Thompson Arboretum near Superior is hosting a temporary multimedia exhibition to coincide with the removal of the last buildings and structures of the historic Magma Copper Company smelter in Superior. The six-month exhibition honors the Magma Copper smelter's cultural significance as a landmark in the community, its place in Superior's mining history and the generations of local families connected to it.
The exhibition, titled "Images to Remember: The Magma Copper Company Smelter at Superior," consists of large reproductions of historic and recent photographs, a video display, maps and construction drawings of the historic smelter complex. The exhibition is installed in the Benson House at the arboretum and will be open to the public free of charge.
The exhibit was made possible by a cooperative agreement between Resolution Copper and the Boyce Thompson Arboretum. The exhibit was curated and installed by WestLand Resources, Inc. of Tucson.
