Making the Scene, Arizona Style

October 9th, 2004 – January 16th, 2005

This exhibit draws from the UA Museum of Art’s permanent collection and presents works that offer a discriminating look at the unique geology and cultures of Arizona. While landscapes as a subject for artists are not particularly innovative, what sets Arizona’s landscape apart are the vivid effects created by sunlight and the vast desert spaces marked by majestic rock formations. The works in this exhibit help us to reconnect with our own experience of the Arizona landscape and perhaps see new details in the beautiful scenery that surround us.
