ARIZONA BIENNIAL 2013
07/20/2013 – 09/29/2013

Out of the 1,250 works submitted to Arizona Biennial 2013, 80 pieces are selected for the exhibition. Here are a handful of images. Of the various group exhibitions I have posted in this blog – I have to say receiving the images for this one, was one pleasant experience after another. The contemporary art work being made across Arizona is compelling. 

About the Biennial: The Tucson event is the oldest running juried exhibition featuring exclusively Arizona artists and will be on view at the
Tucson Museum of Art  • July 20 – September 29, 2013.
About the guest curator:
The work juried into the exhibition was judged by noted guest curator René Paul Barilleaux – Chief Curator/Curator of Art after 1945, McNay Art Museum, San Antonio, Texas.

  1. Kudos, Monica! Your work splendid, thanks for sharing. (I remember having my work included in the Biennial in 1971; how’s that for history!?)

  2. Thank you for posting Monica, Congratulations to everyone in the show.
