Come hear from our three 2018 New Works Grantees in a presentation of their works-in-progress at the University of Arizona Art Museum.
2018 New Works Artist Project Grantees
- Poet and community artist Torran Anderson, whose work addresses the small things about Tucson that we all notice and love.
- Mixed media artist Xinyu Zhang, whose work will be on view in the museum.
- Writer/performance artist, Mele Martinez, whose book-length manuscript called The Molino tells the story of her family and their tamal /tortilla factory in downtown Tucson.
Each will present their work and thoughts on their creative process over the last year of project development.
