HJHP staff work tirelessly to solicit and curate work from thought leaders in many fields, including the arts. This year, our cover art features work by Annie Lopez, an Arizona artist whose work began in photography and now spans many mediums. Lopez’s work is inspired by life in the Southwestern United States and has been shown nationwide including the exhibits “Locals Only: 602/480/623” at the Phoenix Art Museum; “American Voices: Latino Photographers in the U.S.” at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. and “The Show” at the Museum of Fine Arts, Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Lopez has enjoyed decades of recognition from supporters, most recently in the form of an artist grant from the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures (NALAC). Her work is in the collections of the Phoenix Art Museum; McDonald’s Corporation; National Hispanic Cultural Center of New Mexico; Planned Parenthood; City of Phoenix, Arizona; City of Glendale, Arizona; Phoenix Children’s Hospital; Arizona State University; the Tucson Museum of Art and the Diane and Bruce Halle Collection of Latin American Art.
We are thrilled to have Lopez’s work featured as the cover art on Volume 27 of the Harvard Journal of Hispanic Policy! To pre-order a copy of Volume 27 click here – we’re excited to share more art, research and commentary with you.
