TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) – After closing in March 2020, the University of Arizona Art Museum is once again open to the public with a new exhibit.
“We’re so happy to be open again,” said Olivia Miller, the museum’s curator of exhibits. “We’re happy to see the people at the museum interact with art.”
The museum’s new exhibition is titled The art of food. Miller said this exhibit is perfect for Tucson.
“The food theme has kept coming to the surface for me because it concerns everyone,” Miller said. “It connects to the University of Arizona and all of the research that is being done here and of course it connects to Tucson with all the rich food history that we have here.”
Jordan Schnitzer, the owner of the collection, said this exhibition features works of art from all eras and artists.
“There are 30 artists represented here among the biggest names of the past 50 years,” said Schnitzer. “Cory Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, David Hockney, a number of them; all of them have used food in their work, and they make us all see food in a different way.”
Schnitzer said the exhibit has something for everyone.
“Bring your kids, bring your nephews, bring your grandparents. It’s a show that will thrill everyone from 2 to 102 years old,” Schnitzer said. “I think they’re going to smile, frown, they’ll be puzzled, all the things you do when you look at art. It speaks to us all differently.”
The exhibition is open until March 20, 2022.
