I am honored to announce the 01/21/22 opening of “Tucson Stories: Food, Health, Community, Justice” located in the University of Museum of Art Community Gallery as a companion addition to the current  “Art of Food” exhibit. It is an honor to be included in this exhibit with The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.

“Tucson Stories” features the portraits and recorded voices of 12 Tucsonans who originally participated in one of my  2020-2021 social change portrait series, Tucson Frontline Workers, Tucson Black Voices, and Voices of Race.

As the public is looking at a given portrait, they will have the option to follow QR code instructions which allows access to the subject’s recorded voice sharing their perspective. It’s an opportunity for the viewer to slow down and listen to a viewpoint they might not have heard before.

For those who are in Tucson or plan on visiting, the exhibit is up until April 23rd, 2022. The hours of the gallery are 10am-430pm, Tuesday through Saturday.

I wish to extend my profound gratitude to all of the participants for sharing their experiences, and to the Museum of Art for their sponsorship, opportunity and guidance regarding this exhibit.

Voices of Race, a portrait series by Kathleen Dreier, is dedicated to amplifying the voices of our BIPOC communities and being a call of action for all people particularly white communities to be social change agents.  Each participant is encouraged to share whatever they like regarding diversity, inclusion, racism, culture, privilege, etc. No one is censored. My intention and wish is that the viewer reflect upon the words of the person in the portrait and is inspired to engage in their own courageous conversations with their friends and family. It is time we each take the time to reflect on our individual and collective histories, heal from the damage done, and create the foundation for equity and compassion for every human being.
