DESCRIPTION

Zoomorphic art is a clever blend of animal forms and human ideas. Animals provoke many feelings in people, from affection and tenderness to outright fear. In this exhibition, artists combine human feelings with animal images to create curious portraits of both -- in print, painting and ceramics.
 
Hands-on stations in the exhibition spaces encourage visitors to explore animal images. Our free annual Family Fun Day, on Saturday, July 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., continues the exploration for children of all ages with a variety of theme-related art-making activities and performances.
 
Support for Zoomorphic is provided by the Evelyn Smith Exhibition Fund, Friends of the ASU Art Museum and the Stulgaitis Family Scholastic Award in honor of Helen Flecha Poline. Community partners include KAET PBS/8, Changing Hands Bookstore, Papa Murphy and Valley Metro.
