Need2Nourish Art Opening

Saturday, May 4, 6:00 PM

Archived Event: This event is over three months old and is kept here for archival purposes. To see our current and upcoming events, please browse our upcoming events.

This exhibit looks at both the need to nourish our bodies and the need to nourish ourselves through artistic expression. Support for Need2Nourish is provided by the Arts Foundation for Tucson and Southern Arizona, funded by the City of Tucson and Pima County. This exhibit will promote dialogue on both nourishment and/or hunger in our community, while also providing a showcase for local artists and supporting the mission of the Community Food Bank.
