Art Events & Show Previews

In the May issue of Southwest Art, we introduced Show Previews—a new format for our coverage of art events. Each month, the editors will zero in on some of the most important events happening around the country. This new format allows us to offer substantial information about each event, along with plenty of big, beautiful images of works included in the show.
