RETRO REACTION:  Jan 18 - May 11, 2019

Angela Johnson Fantasy Dress with no watermark

The word “retro” describes things like clothes, cars and music that reflect styles and design elements from the past. Artists are often asked, where do you get your ideas? While the creative spark is different for every individual, this exhibition explores the inspirations and art making processes of ten Arizona-based artists. Through personal retrospection, these artists give us a glimpse into how they each absorb, filter and react to art and ideas from the past.
