The Gallery @ The Library - An art exhibition at Civic Center Library

Stop, Fast, SlowStop, Fast, Slow

Stop, Fast, Slow is an exhibition of Arizona artists who respond to how we get around our Arizona cities and in between – blacktop and concrete, dirt roads and trails, freeways and interstates, sitting in traffic, on the bus and train, or cruising the bike lane, from cityscapes to desert and mountain views, high rise buildings to historic bungalows.

August 19, 2013 – October 12, 2013
