Volkerding Print Viewing Room

Join us for a members print viewing showcasing works from across Miyoshi’s career. The viewing brings together photographs made during Miyoshi’s time as CCP artist-in-residence—depicting Tucson streets, homes, and residents, pueblo-style churches, and cowboys—as well as photographs of Miyoshi’s native Japan—street portraits, images of botanical gardens, and works from a series documenting the aftermath of the 2011 quake and tsunami that led to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. Miyoshi will lead a conversation about his work, his time at the Center, and his unique relationship to the desert Southwest as an artist living and working in Japan. After the print viewing, stay for a reception with the artist in the Center’s lobby.

RSVP is required for this event. Please contact Brit Palomarez at 520-621-2625 or
