New American City: Artists Look Forward exhibition at ASU Art Museum

newamericancity.jpgAs an art student at ASU I am happy that John Spiak from the ASU Art Museum has written in to tell us about an exhibit that he is curating called “New American City: Artists Look Forward.” The exhibit is open from Sept. 9 2006 through Jan. 27 2007 and will feature local artists from throughout the valley.

From the exhibit web page:

“[Phoenix] has a growing cultural infrastructure with artists living and working throughout the city. The downtown art scene draws thousands of visitors each month in addition to weekly art walks at the Scottsdale galleries, and contemporary art exhibitions open regularly at non-profit spaces across the Valley. Artists are playing an active role in envisioning the city’s future, developing clusters of studios, co-ops and galleries and revitalizing neighborhoods in the process. New American City: Artists Look Forward is an exhibition and dialogue on contemporary art and artists, and their role in the future of our city.

The website includes images, a schedule of free public lectures and programs, bios on the 23 artists selected and more. The opening reception is Friday, September 8 from 7-10pm and it is FREE to the public, which is always the case at the ASU Art Museum (no admission cost everyday). There will also be a FREE concert that evening with the local bands Sweet Bleeders and Snow Songs. The exhibition space will also have a resource lounge that will include a large selection on the Phoenix areas growth and development, as well as fiction books by local writers.”

Contact information as well as hours of operation are available on the New American City: Artists Look Forward web page.
