A Portrait of 100 Arizona Artists during the Arizona Centennial is a black and white photo documentary of the local artists who have been an integral part of shaping and encouraging the artistic culture in metropolitan Phoenix during the past 20 years. The selected artists for this project will represent a multi generational community of people who through their work contribute to and enhance the quality of creative offerings in Arizona. The project will explore each artist in their studio to capture an organic moment in time during their artistic process. The resultant images will reflect the person and the materials they use to develop their works - the artists are the subjects. The scope of artists includes painters, ceramicists, sculptors, collage artists, art photographers, inter-media artists and muralists. The project aims to educate and celebrate the history and diversity of the arts community by documenting their faces versus their signatures.
The funds for this will help in paying for the printing and framing of the images for the show which we are looking to have around March of 2012. It will aid in paying for a website for an online show for the Arizona Centennial. As well as, help pay to give each artists in the show a print for themselves.
