Open call for art submissions: A taste of Arizona

As the Greater Phoenix region’s premier economic development organization, we not only aim to attract economically sustainable businesses to the Valley, but also strive to highlight the beauty and diversity of our incredible region through the curation and display of locally sourced art.

For our next exhibit, we’re looking to feature art that highlights the wide array of culinary novelties found here in the Copper State. From the chiltepin pepper and its high-ranking status on the Scoville Scale, to prickly pear inspired dishes and cocktails, to authentic Native American cuisine, we want to exhibit works of art that showcase why natives and visitors alike can’t get enough of our Southwestern delicacies.
