Quinn's Wanderings: Of Books and Cities 8/18/2014 12:00:00 AM
Quinn's Wanderings: Of Books and Cities
Burton Barr Central Library will host an exhibition of mixed media works by Steve Valev, titled “Quinn's Wanderings: Of Books and Cities " at the library’s @Central Gallery, 1221 N. Central Ave. An opening reception with the artist will be held 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. Friday, September 5. The band Woodworks will perform, providing a mix of rock, folk, blues, indie and alternative music. The reception is sponsored by Friends of the Phoenix Public Library. 

Born in Bulgaria, Valev has lived in Phoenix for the last 23 years. While his background is in architecture and urban design, his interests are in the ways that those fields can engage topics of politics, sociology, economics and everyday life. Less about a particular resolution, the work is an entry into trying to understand these issues. Many times the work is a kind of catalog precariously linking a network of ideas, references and realities.
 

Valev received his Masters in architecture at Arizona State University. He is an associate at Gould Evans.
