Missed America Pageant

Independence Day fireworks draw the eyes to the spectacular side of this great nation while helping us forget that truth, justice, and the American Way aren't always as simple as waving the flag. The Arizona Artist Collective looks beyond the bombast of the Fourth of July on Friday for its latest show, "Liberty and Justice for Art."

For the AAC's first solo show, 12 artists of the collective explore their own relationship with the ideals of the United States, warts and all. In Larry Willis's The Rising, the menace of war comes alive in acrylic on a triangular canvas as silhouettes of military jets are juxtaposed with the visage of a wary woman. Single-line artist Xandriss highlights the folly of security theater with her work Please Remove Your Belt.

The opening reception for "Liberty and Justice for Art" is from 6 to 10 p.m at {9} The Gallery, 1229 Grand Avenue. Admission is free, and more information about the show can be found at www.azartist.org.

Fri., July 4, 6-10 p.m.; Sundays, 12-5 p.m.; Tuesdays-Thursdays, Saturdays, 12-7 p.m.; Fridays, 12-10 p.m. Starts: July 4. Continues through July 31, 2014
