Arizona immigration law inspires art exhibit

Phoenix, Arizona (CNN) -- The flag of Arizona, skeletons and the Statue of Liberty are just some of the images evoked by a group of artists to give life to their views on Arizona's new immigration law.

 
SB1070: An Artist's Point of View

The collection of prints, sculptures, paintings and photographs are featured in the traveling exhibit, "SB1070: An Artist's Point of View," which opened at the Arizona Latino Arts & Cultural Center in Phoenix the weekend before the law took effect on July 29.

The show will move to galleries throughout Arizona and across the country in an effort to educate the public on how artists from the state that has become ground zero in the immigration debate perceive the matter, said the show's organizer.

"This educational exhibit was born from the thought that there has to be a different way of reaching people's hearts on this issue," said Annie Loyd, founder and CEO of The FUSION Foundation, which organized the exhibit in collaboration with the cultural center.

"This show is not a protest show," she said. "This was truly meant to be something that evokes people's emotions, that allows you to work your way into the art and really consider what's going on."

The show took shape quickly after its conceptualization in a marketing meeting in early June. A call to artists in Arizona for contributions was quickly met with more submissions than the show could hold, prompting its organizers to rotate pieces each time the show moves to a new space.

In their works, the artists bring their personal history and experiences with immigration in Arizona -- a divisive issue in the border state long before SB1070 brought it under the national microscope.

 
To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.
