Betsy Fahlman (Project Director: May 2021 to present)
Phoenix Art Museum - Landscapes of Extraction: The Art of Mining in the American West

The creation of a new art exhibition about mining in the American West at the Phoenix Art Museum, with funding for fourteen staff positions.

The Landscapes of Extraction exhibition focuses on the first half of the 20th century, a period in U.S. history when artists portrayed regional themes in their work, inspired in part by New Deal programs that the government operated during the ’30s and early ’40s. Landscapes of Extraction features approximately 75 paintings and prints from museums, private collections, and galleries, accompanied by works from the collection of Phoenix Art Museum. The exhibition has a strong contemporary component, a point of view often disregarded mining-related scholarship and collections.
