The Laughter Garden -- Diego Pérez

Friday, January 04, 2019
Burton Barr Central Library

Diego Pérez is an artist originally from Mexico whose focus is on humor, irony, and traditional techniques.  He considers it important to modify the legitimization of art and the usual approach of admiration and respect of the art piece by questioning the environment and by using irony and sarcasm.

Join us for a First Friday closing reception from 6:30-8:00 pm Friday, January 4.  The reception is supported by the Friends of the Phoenix Public Library.
