Tucson Portrait Story 1st LIVE Festival: TASTE/WATCH/LISTEN/LEARN, 12 March | Event in Tucson |

“Tucson Portrait Stories” – a first ever live art happening – illuminates the people, places and events that make our community extraordinary. The creation of local artist, Lauri Kaye, the series consists of 60 mixed media stories, layering hand drawing with photography and digital color then printed on metal. A little reminiscent of “Night at the Museum”, these artworks come to life with the portrait subject; Taste salsa & chips with Chef Maria Mazon at her portrait. Learn about butterflies at the Tucson Botanical Gardens portrait or listen to a captivating classical guitar concert by Gabriel Ayala. Top that off with popcorn while you watch an animated movie of the collection.
