Featured on the May 11th, 2023 edition of ARIZONA SPOTLIGHT with host Mark McLemore:

-The current exhibition at the University of Arizona Museum of Art is called “Our Stories”, a collection of work by local high school students. They are finding their voices and making bold statements about the world they see around them. Leah Britton asks three of these artists about receiving guidance from teachers while following their individual muses.
