A Discount Tire Free Family Weekend Collaboration with Laura Spalding Best
Discount Tire Free Family Weekend participants explored angles in relation to the landscape with Phoenix-based artist Laura Spalding Best. Currently on view in the 2017 Contemporary Forum Artists’ Grants Recipients exhibition, Best’s paintings on found objects depict mirages on the horizon of desert highways in the southwest. These phenomena of light and temperature appear as reflections that resemble water on the road surface. Free Family Weekend participants created their own reflections of objects found throughout the local urban landscape, which Best combined to create the murals on view in this gallery.
Reflecting the Landscape is organized by Phoenix Art Museum. The installation will be on view through August 1 in the Wolfswinkel Education Center Children’s Gallery. It is made possible through the generosity of Discount Tire.
