WEST

Arizona Artists of Color exhibition


  Jan. 10 - March 2, 2021 // Civic Center Public Gallery

WEST Arizona Artists of Color aims to show the West as these artists know it - with a rich cultural history. Their work in Arizona shows the universal need to belong, to be accepted, and to be seen, as well as shedding light on the struggle to make social connections and understand one another. The artists in this exhibition express their solidarity with the human condition and the need to be free of prejudice and injustice.

This exhibition combines the talents of some well-recognized names along with emerging artists, who are equally challenged to have their work exhibited. We are pleased to present the work of the following artists: Clendolyn Corbin, Gloria Martinez-Granados, Eugene Grigsby, Annie Lopez, Stephen Marc, Hugo Medina, Sebastiao Pereira, Joe Ray, Safwat Saleem, Sonny Sholola, Joe Willie Smith, Ani Tung, Claire A. Warden, RIP Woods, Frank Ybarra, and Bernard Young.

View WEST, or in person at the Civic Center Public Gallery inside the Scottsdale Civic Center Library. Scottsdale Civic Center Library has limited hours due to COVID-19. Visit the library website for current hours at ScottsdaleLibrary.org/COVID19.
