Rethinking Social Justice

Featuring Allison Miller and Alfred Quiroz

Rethinking Social Justice featuring Alfred Quiroz and Allison Miller brings together two artists that grew up in Tucson. Both artists are from minority backgrounds with art that focuses awareness on social justice issues. Allison is a woman of color and Alfred has Hispanic and Yaque heritage.  

About the Artists

The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum commissioned her to paint a large mural along the I-10 frontage road. Her social justice artwork brings awareness to our society and people of color, from Eartha Kitt and Aretha Franklin to peaceful equal justice protest lines. In 2019, Allison Miller was awarded the prestigious Buffalo Exchange Award for Visual Artist of the Year.

Alfred Quiroz earned his MFA from the University of Arizona after obtaining degrees from the San Francisco Art Institute and Rhode Island School of Design. Quiroz is Professor Emeritus of Art at the University of Arizona where he taught for three decades.
