PHOENIX (September 5, 2017) – In collaboration with Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona, Phoenix Art Museum presents an installation of original artwork created by young men currently living in an unaccompanied minors’ shelter.

The installation represents the second consecutive year that the Free Arts Professional Artist Series, in collaboration with Phoenix Art Museum and Phoenix-based teaching artist, Emily Costello, has led a Museum-based workshop for unaccompanied minors in Phoenix. During the series, a group of teenage boys, all refugees from Central and South America, visited Phoenix Art Museum every Wednesday for seven weeks.
