The Tucson Museum of Art is closed, but you can still tour the feature exhibition Southwest Rising: Contemporary Art and the Legacy of Elaine Horwitch. In part 1 of the video tour, Chief Curator Dr. Julie Sasse introduces art dealer Elaine Horwitch.
Horwitch was a major force in contemporary art in the Southwest from the early 1970s until her death in 1991, responsible for launching the careers of hundreds of artists from the region. With galleries in Scottsdale, Santa Fe, Sedona and Palm Springs, she was a leader in fostering what has been called “new Western art” or “Southwest pop.”
