The Tucson Museum of Art and START present The Arts Speak, a single-night festival that invites local artists and organizations to display and create art that engages in dialogue about the issues that “speak” to them. This unique event will focus on art as a means to discuss consciousness and awareness of the self in society, inspiring a global conversation that begins locally. The Arts Speak will have two major components: art displayed in the Museum’s Margaret E. Mooney lobby and participatory art experiences hosted in the Tucson Museum of Art’s Plaza of the Pioneers courtyard. All art displayed or created at the event is made by local artists and organizations.

In the courtyard, participants may partake in a number of interactive art creation opportunities, such as: a human mural, a “Before I Die” message wall, origami crane folding to decorate a Tree of Life sculpture, live animal sketching, and the creation of life-size photographs.

Rebecca Wilkinson, MA, ATR-BC, LCPAT and Sally Markley, MA, ATR-BC, LPC, local art therapists and representative of the Arizona Art Therapy Association, will present informational/experiential workshops introducing art therapy to the general public.
