Members' Preview Day: Push Pull by Valeska Soares

Mar 23, 2018, 12pm
noon - 2 pm See (and taste) a special Members-only performance of Push Pull, one of the interactive works in the exhibition Valeska Soares: Any Moment Now.

This performance is free for Phoenix Art Museum Members. To bec... (View more)
