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.
