Art & Arizona: Celebrating 100 years


On Saturday 7, January, 6-10pm Art Intersection opened, Arizona Re-Viewed, an exhibition in celebration of Arizona’s centennial year. The exhibition includes historic and contemporary images of Arizona to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Arizona statehood.

In this exhibition Arizona is re-viewed by nine contemporary photographers who currently live in Arizona in addition to many historical photographers. Each contemporary artistbrings a unique vision that is informed by their connection with living and working in Arizona whether by going out into the Sonoran Desert, walking the streets of mining towns at night, exploring the urban landscape or pointing their lens on friends and family. Some of the artists were born and raised in Arizona while others came here for unique opportunities including school and work.

The historical pieces, including images by Timothy O’Sullivan dating back to ca 1871, are among the many cartes-de-visite, cabinet cards, boudoir cabinet cards, stereographs, mounted albumen prints, cyanotypes and panoramic silver prints all courtesy of Jeremy Rowe Vintage Photography.

The exhibition runs through February 25th, 2012.
