The Drawing Studio to host IRC 'Flight' exhibit
Jacques Lipchitz, NY 1969
What is sanctuary? Join us at The Drawing Studio on Oct. 6 and 19 for the launch of Sanctuary Through Partnership: A Collaboration Featuring FLIGHT.
The International Rescue Committee in Tucson, The Drawing Studio, The Tucson Jewish Community Center and The Tucson Museum of Art have joined forces to create Sanctuary Through Partnership: A Collaboration Featuring FLIGHT. Beginning with the opening reception at The Drawing Studio, the International Rescue Committee in Tucson will present its FLIGHT exhibit, a collection of original prints reflecting the plight of refugees from 12 major mid-century artists such as Chagall, Calder, Lipschitz and others, to engage the greater Tucson community in the mission of the IRC and to open a community dialogue through art about the meaning and importance of sanctuary.
The FLIGHT exhibit will be shown in conjunction with a faculty show at The Drawing Studio under the theme of “Sanctuary,” and will later be paired with a Call to Artists to submit original works of art to be shown in conjunction with FLIGHT at the JCC in March. The exhibition will culminate with a final showing at the Tucson Museum of Art during their exhibit, Museum as Sanctuary in July. Through these activities, Sanctuary Through Partnership: A Collaboration Featuring FLIGHT will highlight the importance that all people – refugees or otherwise – have a place to find sanctuary.
Events at The Drawing Studio:
Saturday, Oct. 6 from 6-9 p.m.: Opening reception and faculty show
Friday, Oct. 19 from 6-7:30 p.m.: Gallery talk and faculty panel
The Drawing Studio, 33 S. 6th Ave. in Tucson
We hope to see you there!
