Join us in celebrating the exhibition Annie Lopez: Origin Story with an evening reception featuring remarks by the artist, refreshments, and musical enrichment at the University of Arizona Museum of Art.
Annie Lopez is a storyteller. Informed by family history, remedies, and lived experiences as both a Mexican-American and fourth-generation Phoenician, her stories are told with text and images through her signature photography and cyanotype prints. Origin Story highlights two main bodies of the artist’s work: her striking dress forms, fashioned from cyanotype prints on tamale wrappers, and the Storybook series.
Nationally recognized and highly awarded, Lopez was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. Her art practice, which focuses on the Chicano and Mexican experience in the Southwest, has taken her across the country. Lopez was honored by the National Museum of Women in the Arts and awarded the 2016 Arizona Governor’s Arts Award. She was featured in Phoenix Magazine’s “Best of the Valley 2023,” The New York Times’ “The Much-Vaunted American Melting Pot,” and many more.
