Walk in My Shoes
Jan 19-May 12
The arts help us express what cannot be said. Through an artist’s eyes, we can experience, discover and see how it feels to “walk in another person’s shoes” for a moment. While it is impossible for one exhibition to convey the entirety of the human condition, this show celebrates diversity, expression and the value of multiple viewpoints. Exhibiting Artists: Marco Albarran, Sama Alshaibi, Angela Ellsworth, Annie Lopez, Stephen Marc, Emily Matyas, Ann Morton, Julio Cesar Morales, Gregory Sale and Will Wilson. Support provided by Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Communities.
