HP Outing: MicroArt plus MicroDwell & Sculpture Garden, Shemer Art Center

Humanities Project Outing: Now through March 22


The Shemer Art Center challenged 18 of the Valley’s extraordinary artists to create small works of art expressing big ideas. This MicroArt gallery exhibit of wall and freestanding art works will run concurrently with MicroDwell 2014, an installation of small dwellings on the Shemer grounds.

Inspired MicroArt artists will show museum quality paintings, drawings, prints, fiber art, ceramics, sculpture, and more that measure 12″ or less in any dimension. The stunning art made for this exhibit would complement any micro dwelling or other small space designed for living or working. The Shemer’s MicroArt artists and MicroDwell designers prove that scaling down can improve rather than compromise the quality of everyday life.

MicroArt exhibiting artists include: Victoria Altepeter, Michael Anderson, John Armstrong, Donna Atwood, Ron Berman, Ron Bimrose, Sandy Blain, Sam Chung, Tom Eckert, Jane Kelsey-Mapel with Becky Frehse, Sandra Luehrsen, Monica Aissa Martinez, Ann Morton, Cynthia Peterson, Tom Ortega, Helen Norsigian Rowles, Polly Smith, and Clare Verstegen.

Open to the Public: Tuesday – Saturday 10:00AM  - 3:00PM

Suggested Donation $7.  Note: The Shemer Art Center is wheelchair accessible. Please call if you have any questions about accessibility[masked]-4727.

Visitors to the center enjoy free parking on site. Entrance Gates are on Arcadia Drive.

While you are there, you might as well also enjoy the MicroDwell 2014 exhibit and the new sculpture garden!

MicroDwell is an exhibition of owner built and human inhabited micro-dwellings, which will be on display from February 15 thru March 23 at the Shemer Art Center & Museum in Phoenix, Arizona. The exhibit will showcase the design-build features of small modular structures, their varied uses, alternative construction techniques and cost effectiveness. MicroDwell 2014 will highlight the positive benefits to the environment by conscientious material selection, use of salvage materials, and minimization of waste.

The exhibit will showcase varied designs from practical to artistic, as well as the creative effort of each builder. Structures on exhibit are required to be 600 square feet or less, self-contained, modular, and portable. Visit www.microdwelling.net for more information or click here for the current schedule!
