Friends of Mexican Art celebrate 50 Years of Collecting and Giving

More than 60 works of art are on display at Phoenix Sky Harbor in Terminal 4 in an exhibition titled “Friends of Mexican Art celebrate 50 Years of Collecting and Giving.” The exhibition is a collaborative between the Phoenix Airport Museum and The Friends of Mexican Art (FOMA), a local nonprofit organization comprised of individuals who collect, promote and donate art by Mexican artists.

The exhibit features paintings, sculptures and prints from Mexican artists such as José Clemente Orozco, Rufino Tamayo, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and Francisco Zuniga. The art in this exhibition comes from the private collections of FOMA members, as well as artworks that FOMA donated to the Phoenix Art Museum, Arizona State University Art Museum and the Heard Museum.

Compagnie Käfig

A major figure in the global hip-hop scene, French choreographer Mourad Merzouki works at the intersection of many different disciplines, from circus and martial arts to visual art and music. His unique dance ensemble, Compagnie Käfig, has become an international sensation with its passionate young dancers from the shanty towns of Rio de Janeiro performing an intoxicating fusion of hip-hop, capoeira and samba. Bursting with energy, this breathtaking performance is two shows in one: Correria (running), a thrilling, hectic race, and Agwa (water), an exploration of this vital resource and symbol of renewal.
