For decades, art has shaped this state. Almost 100 years ago, brothers Ellsworth and Emery Kolb packed a few ropes and large-format cameras and set off to capture their backyard wonder, the Grand Canyon. Their efforts were published, archived, and followed by a few of the the best landscape painters, photographers, and sculptors who continue to inspire artwork worldwide.
In the 100 years since Arizona's statehood, countless visual artists have made an impact on local culture through their work. Some of Arizona's most memorable artists were born here, some traveled through (and stayed for a while), and others chose to make Arizona home. Until February 14, we'll list 100.
