Featured exhibit "Learning to See" explores artist Josef Albers' argument that colors influence other colors and can be truly understood only in the context of one another.

Photographer David Maisel's "American Landscape and the Apocalyptic Sublime" interprets large-scale images and mineral-based prints to guide the viewer through a transformation of the American West, appealing to issues of sustainability and urban sprawl.

Curated at SMoCA, "Stocked" relies on 16 artists to examine the human relationship with the mundane chore of grocery shopping, from grocery lists by Adriane Herman to Sonny Assu's reinterpretation of cereal boxes.

Join the festivities from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 31, at 7374 East Second Street. Admission is free. A cash bar is available, and Djentrification performs in the SMoCA Lounge. All exhibits remain on view into September. Visit or call 480-874-4666. -- Janessa Hilliard
