Open call for art submissions: Arizona Illustrated

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.

As our region works to pioneer a more innovative future for generations to come, we’re taking a moment to honor the trailblazers that came before us. For our next exhibit, we’re seeking submissions that illustrate Arizona’s story. Art pieces that depict the folklore, legends, myths, traditions and tall tales that showcase the richness and diversity of this state’s rugged history. Through honoring our past, we become better positioned for progress – having gleaned a greater depth of empathy for others and a determination for actionable inclusion.
