Arizona Commission on the Arts

We are thrilled to announce that we have just received notification that phICA has been awarded a Community Investment Grant (Level 1) from the Arizona Commission on the Arts in the 2014 grant cycle, our first from the state agency. The amount was more than double what it would have been because of the one-time allocation of additional funds for FY2014 grant-making in the amount of $1 million from the Arizona State Legislature announced in June, 2013. The Arts Commission receives its funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and the State of Arizona. The grant will support a phICA project in 4th quarter of 2013/early 2014 which will be announced later this fall.

Macy's

We are thrilled to announce the generous support by Macy’s of phICA’s exhibition projects especially as they relate to “culture, collaboration and innovation with Brazil.” We received the announcement with the following encouragement, “we extend our best wishes for your continued success. It is a pleasure to be counted among your current supporters.”

Ted Decker connects Rio de Janeiro and Phoenix mayors!

Rio de Janeiro visual artist and musician Edgar Duvivier made and posted a video of Ted Decker guiding him through the recent exhibitions in Rio de Janeiro.

In an impromptu manner, Decker, speaking in Portuguese (people who speak Portuguese claim to understand what he said!), discussed phICA’s exhibit Sue Chenoweth: Real and Applied and a concurrent exhibition he co-curated titled O espaço entre (The Space Between) which included 7 artists based in Phoenix in their first international exhibition.
