Arizona will be celebrating its centennial in 2012 and the events to help in the celebration have already begun.  One such event is the “Iconic Arizona: Celebrating the Centennial with Photographs from the Center for Creative Photography” exhibit at the Phoenix Art Museum.  The exhibit features 70 images borrowed from the archives of Tucson’s Center for Creative Photography that portray Arizona iconic places and landmarks.  The photographs in the exhibit range from international names such as Ansel Adams and Edward Weston to Arizona photographers such as Dick Arentz and John Schafer.  But this exhibit goes beyond the works of the masters.  There is an ever changing digital gallery as part of the show as well.  Everyone is invited to submit their own work of what represents iconic Arizona to them and those images will  be featured in a digital display and online.  If you are interested in submitting your photos you can submit them here.

    This is a must see! I think it will draw many in, especially since there will be photos by Ansel Adams and Edward Weston. It is also beneficial to the local photographers to be able to submit their photographs.
