Lopez featured at PAM
Annie Lopez, the 2012 Contemporary Forum Mid-Career Artist Award recipient, has been selected to exhibit her art in a solo show at the Phoenix Art Museum, which continues until the end of this month. Each year, Contemporary Forum, a Phoenix Art Museum support organization now in its 30th year, awards one grant to a mid-career artist working in Arizona. The artist is selected from a competitive pool of candidates nominated by members of Contemporary Forum and the recipient creates a new series of work exhibited in a solo show in the museum. Lopez’ show features more than ten dresses that she created from old patterns, which are then transformed into blue sculptures, each with its own theme inspired by insightful moments from Lopez’ life.
