Exhibit Opening: When Rez Dogs Howl by Thomas ‘Breeze’ Marcus
July 7, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
When Rez Dogs Howl is a new body of work by Thomas ‘Breeze’ Marcus. The exhibit explores the layers, complications, and duality of juxtaposing contemporary O’Odham with traditional narratives and ancestral ties to the Phoenix basin and throughout the Sonoran Desert. This exhibit was generously funded by the Friends of Pueblo Grande Museum.
Thomas ‘Breeze’ Marcus has been spray-painting large-scale murals throughout the City of Phoenix for nearly three decades. He is also a studio painter and has done work for various museum collections and exhibits throughout the country. Marcus’ art is directly inspired by graffiti, public art, contemporary Native issues, and his Akimel and Tohono O’Odham heritage. By finding and creating parallels in his artwork, Marcus carries on a long lineage of creative and innovative history in the Phoenix area.
When Rez Dogs Howl will be on display at Pueblo Grande Museum from July 7, 2022 to May 14, 2023.
You are invited to a
free opening exhibit reception
from 6 – 8 p.m.
