Mapping Q: 2020 is an online exhibition featuring artworks by LGBTQ+ youth from across the state of Arizona. These works reflect the issues and experiences impacting LGBTQ+ youth, as well as the incredible resilience and creative imagination each artist holds.

Their works respond to topics such as queer futurism, intersectionality, radical visibility, and more. Through this online exhibition we aim to build community and celebrate the stories and experiences of LGBTQ+ youth.

Mapping Q is an annual art program serving LGBTQ+ youth, created through a collaboration between the University of Arizona Museum of Art and the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation (SAAF). For six years, the program has worked to reduce stigma regarding queer and trans identities, queer and trans bodies, and youth mental health.  This past year COVID-19 dramatically impacted youth, limiting their ability to escape abusive or unsupportive home life, seek support from friends and peer groups, or access other social networks and supports. Mapping Q responded to this crisis by expanding our partnership to include One-n-Ten, Phoenix’s LGBTQ+ youth center, allowing us to serve youth residing anywhere in Arizona. In a series of nine weekly virtual workshops, participants explored topics of art-making, self-care and harm reduction.

Mapping Q is made possible by support from the LGBT&S Alliance Fund held at the Community Foundation of Southern Arizona. This program is also made possible through support from the UAMA’s Stanley Glickman Outreach Endowment
