Due to impending weather, we cancelled Celebrate Sedona originally scheduled for Wednesday, February 2. BUT we have a new date – Wednesday, February 9 – same time (4-6PM) in our parking lot.
This Celebrate Sedona was programmed to coincide with Vision & Sound: An African American Experience which opened on January 28 and will run until February 25 here in Sedona.
Vision & Sound is unique in a number of ways. First, we are partnering with the City of Goodyear and the City of Glendale – both of whom will be hosting events and exhibits throughout the month. Second, Sedona Arts Center is holding several artist talks and demonstrations here that celebrate black artists and culture. And finally, the work in both exhibits – here and in Goodyear – all tell a story. It is not art for art’s sake but art that provokes, celebrates and inspires the viewer to think more deeply about the history of our country, its cultures and its people.
The Vision & Sound exhibits feature the work of Patricia Bohannon, Jacqueline Chanda, Michael Cunningham, Dig, Jenita Landrum, Bob Martin, and Kris Rhymes. Other participating artists are Rhonda Shakur, Robert Glenn and the Ratio Band.
You can view the recorded Opening Event and Artist Talks on visionandsound.org. There is also a virtual gallery up of all the artist’s work and you will be able to see most of the events we are doing through live stream on this website.
Vision & Sound is supported by grants and contributions from Arizona Community Foundation, Arizona Commission on the Arts, Arizona Humanities Council, ASU Center for the Study of Race and Democracy, Best Western Arroyo Roble Hotel and Creekside Villas, City of Glendale, City of Goodyear, Carol Meiner, and The Links, Incorporated Phoenix Chapter.
I hope to see you at one of our events very soon!
CEO, Sedona Arts Center
