MOCA Tucson Announces “From Here to Eternity: Selections from the University of Arizona School of Art”

MOCA Tucson is pleased to announce From Here to Eternity: Selections from the University of Arizona School of Art. This group exhibition features the work of seven 2019 BFA graduates and twelve MFA students. Selected by MOCA Tucson Executive Director and Chief Curator, the art on view represents a diversity of work created by students exploring a range of topics from the traumas of war to an exploration of self, from capitalism to religion and beyond. Says Porcella: “MOCA Tucson took this opportunity to highlight the work from current art and design students at the University of Arizona. It gives our audiences a chance to explore new, contemporary work that is being created right here in Tucson by the next generation of rising art stars.” Colin Blakely, Director of the School of Art at the University of Arizona states: “MOCA presents an incredible platform to engage the communities of Southern Arizona in a broad range of contemporary practices. They have been an amazing partner for the school, and we are delighted for the opportunity to provide exposure and a professional experience for our students that extends beyond the borders of campus.”
