Friday, January 11 at 5:30 pm, the Florence Community Library invites you to a presentation about water and its influence on Arizona art.


Since artists first visited our region, water has been a subject for their work – from rivers and lakes to dams, agriculture, and recreation. Join Dr. James Ballinger, former director of the Phoenix Art Museum, as he explores works of art created over the past 150 years, including a look at the Hoover Dam as a significant work of art in its own right. Dr. Ballinger will also encourage participants to discuss the various ways water is systemic to life in the Arizona deserts, mountains, and the Colorado plateau, and will be available to answer questions after the program.


This free program is made possible by AZ Humanities. It will be held at the Florence Library and Community Center on January 11 at 5:30 pm.  For more information, or to sign up, please contact the library at (520) 868 – 8311.
