PhxArtist Spotlight

Phoenix Art Museum launches a new weekly series that spotlights Arizona artists

Presented by Phoenix Art Museum, PhxArtist Spotlight is a new weekly series that explores what inspires and motivates Valley creatives, while leveraging the Museum’s reach in the community to support and expand awareness of working artists, many of whom have been deeply impacted by the economic effects of COVID-19.

Each Tuesday, the Museum highlights a different artist working in Arizona, posting a Q&A with the artist and images of his or her work on the Museum’s Instagram, Facebook and Twitter channels and on the Museum’s bilingual blog.

The artist will also be highlighted in a monthly email sent to Museum members, Circles of Support donors and an email subscriber list of more than 67,000 followers. 

Community members are invited to nominate artists for consideration.
