The Latona Project is a three night art making workshop and art tour at The University of Arizona Museum of Art from 6 - 9 p.m. 

This project, which is free to LGBTQ seniors, is aimed at discovering how art and art museums are relevant to important issues and lived experiences of LGBTQ seniors in Tucson. This workshop is free.

The guided tours will encourage community building through discussions of art and identity, and the art making workshops will allow participants to use those discussions to connect their identity to a work of art they create.

The workshops will also feature guest speakers, museum professionals and local artists to guide discussion and artmaking.

At the conclusion of the workshops the works created by participants will be part of a temporary exhibit at the University of Arizona Museum of Art. Participants will also have the opportunity to donate their works to the LGBTQ Archives at the University of Arizona to help preserve and share important memories and visual responses of our LGBTQ seniors.

The Latona Project is being hosted by the University of Arizona Museum of Art and has been made possible through grants from the University of Arizona College of Fine Arts donors and the Confluence Center for Creative Inquiry.
