Through the Eyes of the Beholders: Two Families Collect Arizona Artists is a multi-media art exhibition sponsored by the Museum of Arizona Artists, MOAZA, and held at the Arizona Capitol Museum in Phoenix, March 9th – June 14, 2024. Exploring the idea of the various audiences that view the art—the general public, the organizing curator, the art collectors, and most essentially, the artists themselves, the exhibition will create a dialogue between these audiences and the individual works of art. Themes to be explored will include the historic past of place and memory, as well as ideas of emotion, fantasy and imagination, and even intellectual musings. The art features the creations of both living and dead artists from around the state, including a mix of both younger, as well as distinguished creators such as James Turrell, Fritz Scholder, Anne Coe, Steve Yazzie, and Beth Ames-Schwartz. Content emphasis and educational activities will be directed to a wide variety of age groups and family-friendly subject matter.
