Your Concise Southwest US Art Guide for Spring 2020
Your list of must-see, fun, insightful art events this season in the Southwest United States.
Spring has sprung (or has started to) in northern New Mexico (where our Southwest US editor Ellie Duke lives), and that means it’s time to come out of hibernation to explore the artistic offerings of the season. As always, there are many wonderful exhibitions, festivals, and art events taking place during the coming months throughout the southwestern US. We’ve put together our recommendations, and hope this wide-ranging list will inspire a season of road-tripping across the wide-open spaces of the region to experience its artistic happenings for yourself.

Installation view of Amir Fallah: Scatter My Ashes on Foreign Lands at MOCA Tucson (courtesy MOCA Tucson)
When: through May 3
Where: Museum of Contemporary Art Tucson (265 South Church Avenue, Tucson, AZ)
This exhibition traces Fallah’s development over the last decade, and spans his prolific and diverse body of work, much of which features unique takes on traditional portraiture. His paintings are maximalist and diverse, ornate with color, object, and pattern — his paintings often display a dry humor, while addressing heavy themes like immigration, trauma, and history.
