The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Arizona is celebrating its 60th-anniversary with a traveling art exhibition reflecting its mission. The exhibit—In This Together: Sixty Years of Daring to Create a More Perfect Arizona—is on display at the NAU Art Museum from June 11 through July 19.
In This Together features artworks conceived in celebration of 60 years of activism on the part of the ACLU in Arizona. Works include paintings, sculptures, photography and mixed media. An opening reception is from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on June 13. If possible, please RSVP to ACLU.
“The NAU Art Museum decided to serve as a venue for the exhibition out of our conviction that any museum is not simply a cultural resource, but a participant in the civic life of its community,” says Art Museum Director George Speer, noting the museum does not take one political position over another. The ACLU of Arizona states its work “isn’t about one person, one party, or one issue. It’s about all of us, we the people, coming together and daring to create a more perfect Arizona. We’re in this together.”
Since November 2018, In This Together: Sixty Years of Daring to Create a More Perfect Arizona, has been on display at ASU Gammage, the Arizona History Museum, Prescott College, the Etherton Gallery in Tucson.
The NAU Art Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. Admission is free, but a $2 donation is suggested. No parking permit is required for community members attending campus events on Friday after 4:30 p.m. and on weekends.
