This exhibition will help Arizona Art Alliance to provide public awareness and exposure to visual art; expand the number of art venues and marketing opportunities for visual artists, and expand art outreach program activities in the south east Valley community.
“The Arizona Art Alliance mission is to promote the visual arts through collaboration with member organizations, strategic partnerships and community involvement.”
