We look at an art project that launches Friday on an empty lot on Roosevelt Row. Handmade blankets will cover the lot, then be given to homeless agencies in the Valley.
Connecting Visual Art With Immigration Reform
When the word “art” is brought up with the discussions in Washington over immigration reform, it is usually included in phrases like the “art of compromise” or the “art of politics," but a new arrangement of six murals unveiled last week as part of Phoenix’s First Friday aims to connect visual art with the economic impact of immigration reform.
Tania Marquez is president and CEO of Torres Marquez Communications, The firm commissioned the murals.
One of the mural artists commissioned by Torres Marquez is Pablo Luna. He is responsible for two of the murals. The other artists commissioned were Lalo Cota and Tato Caraveo.
