Living the prolific life

2011 proved a fruitful year for Fausto Fernandez. 

In addition to exhibiting his work in museums and galleries (and eateries and coffee shops like Gallo Blanco Café y Bar at the Clarendon Hotel and Lux on Central), the local artist spent part of last year working on group shows, a public art project for the 44th Street and Washington light rail stop, and even a commissioned piece for an iPad game.

Over the summer Fausto won the Erni Cabat Award for most beautiful painting at the Arizona Biennial 2011 at the Tucson Museum of Art with his submission, It’s What You Do with Time that Heals. The piece was subsequently accepted into the museum’s permanent collection. 

 In another important milestone in Fernandez’s career, the Heard Museum also accepted one of his pieces into its permanent collection, Demographic Fabric of America. This piece is currently part of the exhibition, The Border Project: Soundscapes, Landscapes, and Lifescapes at the University of Arizona Museum of Art (through March 11, 2012).
