Monsters Under the Bed – Works on Paper by Curt Kiwak
July 8 – Sept. 6
Artist’s reception Sunday, August 28, 2 – 4 pm
Curt treats the blank page as a mini-theater, a place where narratives unfold as a drawing takes shape. From a group of random forms, what once appeared to be a pillow on a bed may prove to be a valiant knight, saving a child from monsters.
The Fine Art Gallery at the Tucson J is pleased to present selected artworks from the most recent Mapping Q project.
Mapping Q is an innovative community arts education program where LGTBQ+ youth explore representations of self within art, museums, and the wider community. The program originated with The University of Arizona Museum of Art’s Assistant Curator of Education, Chelsea Farrar, two years ago and has since been honored with local and state-wide awards.
Mapping Q hangs in the main hallway of the Tucson J from August 17 to Sept. 29.
