greetings from Brazil!


Please join us this Friday, February 20 at 11am for the FREE talk with Brazilian artist Paulo Nenflidio, on the beginning of his Social Studies initiative residency:


with additional speakers Marcio Botner, director of A Gentil Carioca, Rio de Janeiro, and John Spiak, curator at the ASU Art Museum.

This week’s conversation is an opportunity to welcome Brazilian artist Paulo Nenflidio as he shares insight into his earlier work and concepts for his community collaborative work during the residency. The conversation will be the first opportunity for personal conversations with the artist to develop collaboration possibilities as the artist begins his six week Social Studies residency in the ASU Art Museum.  

This project is made possible through funding provided by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, F.A.R. (Future Arts Research) @ Arizona State University, and Friends of the ASU Art Museum. In-kind support provided by Comfort Inn of Tempe.

Conversations @ 11 is a free series to explain and discuss current projects happening at the museum. Meet artists, curators, collectors and guests in a relaxed, casual atmosphere while you learn more about art.

And plan to join us later that evening for the FREE Spring Season Kick-off celebration Friday, from 7-9pm!

Joining us at the reception will be Brazilian artist Paulo Nenflidio and ceramic artist Kurt Weiser, we’ll have a dance performance throughout the evening as well as hands-on activities for the kids (and who doesn’t like origami?) All activities, snacks, admission and even parking is free!

*Find free parking: on the NE Corner of Mill Ave and 10th Street there are spaces marked for the museum, and also the big parking lots open to the public at 7pm. Very convenient!


Keep your money and support the arts at the same time. What a great way to start the weekend!

Eden Revisited at ASU Art Museum

the Ceramic Art of Kurt Weiser

Eden Revisited: the Ceramic Art of Kurt Weiser

I shot this image with my iPhone this morning as I was coming into the museum. I’m really excited to see the full show- Weiser is an important ceramic artist and more so, his work is simply beautiful. The show opens officially on Feb. 14, but the artist will be in attendance at the season opening reception – and signing books!- on Feb. 20, 7-9 pm.

You don’t want to miss this exhibition. I promise you’ll never look at ceramics the same way again.

ASU Art Faculty Show opening soon!

I had the pleasure of meeting artist and ASU Professor Mary Hood as I walked through the gallery this morning. She was viewing her work that’s just been hung for the upcoming Art Faculty exhibition and we had a lovely chat. You can find more about Mary on the Herberger College website.

The exhibition opening reception is next Friday, October 17, 7pm – 9pm. It’s open to the public, it’s free, there’s free parking, there’s great art and there’s wine. Plus you get the added bonus of our other opening, the video installation by Nadia Hironaka, which has turned one gallery into a pseudo-abandoned drive-in theater. It’s black. And it’s cool. Really, what more could you ask for in one night?

Both exhibitions run through January 25, 2009, so you have plenty of time. But you’re missing a party if you don’t come on Friday. Just so you know.  :)

Preparing for New Exhibitions

We’re getting ready at the museum for the next exhibition openings. On one side of our first floor we have the light and bright gallery for our Faculty Art Exhibition 2008-09. Time to see just how good our ASU instructors are! (hint: they’re fabulous!)

On the other side, the blacked out gallery for Nadia Hironaka’s The Late Show. This is unusual for us to do, but her setting of an abandoned drive-in theater requires blocking out all that light. With full surround sound and multi-channel video, this is something you don’t want to miss.

Opening reception is Friday October 17, 7-9pm. As always, it’s all free and open to the public. The last one was a great party with about 600 people, so don’t miss the next one!
(Both exhibitions run through January 25.)
