Join us for a preview of Mapping Q, where you can get a first glimpse at the art! Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet the artists and enjoy music at the Museum.

Mapping Q is an innovative community arts education program that invites LGTBQ+ youth to explore representations of self within the Museum. The participants map the Museum and the work within, then create original art works in response to their discoveries, adding their unique voices to the story. This program is produced in partnership with the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation.

Join UAMA Curator Olivia Miller for a guided tour of Nine Old Master prints from the Museum’s graphic collection. As part of the tour, she will discuss some of the issues encountered by visual artists working during the Reformation era.

In recognition of the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Reformation, we will exhibit nine Old Master prints from its graphic collection. Through these works viewers will understand how art was used to shape public opinion about theological debates and their political and social ramifications. Prints by artists such as Pieter Bruegel, Rembrandt van Rijn, and Theodor de Bry illustrate some of the ways these messages were conveyed through biblical stories, portraits, and allegories.

Olivia Miller received her B.A. in Studio Art and Art History from the University of Arizona and her M.A. in Art History from the University of Oregon where her thesis research explored Spanish royal hunting portrait tradition, with particular attention paid to the works of Diego Velázquez and Francisco Goya. Currently a Ph.D. student in art history she has worked at the UA Museum of Art for five years. In addition to curating a wide range of exhibitions and leading the museum’s docent program, she also serves on the museum’s acquisitions and public art committees. Prior to her position at UAMA she taught art history for both high school and college levels and worked at multiple non-profit arts organizations in Oregon and Arizona.
