See More Than 100 Artworks Inspired by Politics, Social Justice, and Elections

Arizona artists have a long history of tackling hot topics on the political landscape, such as civil rights, immigration, and reproductive rights. Here's a look back at more than 100 artworks we spotted on the metro Phoenix arts scene during the most recent election cycle, or in the aftermath of the presidential election in 2016. They've all got a political or social justice twist, and most were created by Arizona artists. Updated August 20, 2017.
