Curator’s statement

Growing up by the beach, I was absolutely floored the first time I saw the Sonoran desert live and in-person. Arizona has some of the most beautiful, jaw-dropping sites to see and I have made it my personal mission since moving to the sunny state of Arizona to discover the best of them!

The Grand Canyon - Probably the most well known feature Arizona has! This National Park is boasting with activities and mesmerizing views.

Horseshoe Bend - One of the most beautiful natural wonders I have ever seen. Catch it in the afternoon/evening hours for the best lighting.

Antelope Canyon - While it can be difficult to get to, it is worth every bit when you see this stunning slot canyon for the first time.
