Community Art Project

Our artist in residence, Anila Rubiku, is ready to get started on her big project and she needs your help! Here are the official details- come to the Museum at Mill Avenue and 10th Street, in the Nelson Fine Arts Center, to participate.

Be creative. Be human.  :)


The Arizona State University Art Museum is excited to announce that Artist in Residence Anila Rubiku will be setting up a collaborative project space in the center of the Arizona State University Art Museum’s Americas Gallery.

Beginning Tuesday, October 28, and continuing through Friday, November 14, Anila will be collaborating with members of the community in the gallery during the following scheduled hours:

Tuesday, 2-6pm;  Wednesday through Friday, 1-4pm

All supplies needed for the project will be provided in the gallery, so we ask participants to use our standard check-in process at the front desk for large bags and other items. All participants will be working directly with the artist in a designated/defined/stantioned space within the gallery during scheduled hours. During non-scheduled hours the collaborative project space will be closed but viewable to the public. 

The process will be documented through the new ASU Art Museum blog online at the following address: (you are here!)


2008 ArtsLink Fellow ANILA RUBIKU, ALBANIA

Rubiku, often assisted by members from local communities, constructs large-scale sewn structures that explore urban architectural spaces and the depiction of the human body. Her work has been exhibited throughout Europe and Asia and in the US. Rubiku is interested in bringing knowledge of American art and architectural centers and community organization practices back to Albania to inform an urban revitalization project she will undertake with architectural students from Tirana and the Lindart Cultural Center.
