Tempe Artist Kendra Sollars: 100 Creatives

Phoenix is brimming with creativity. And every other year, we put the spotlight on 100 of the city's creative forces. Leading up to the release of this year's Best of Phoenix issue, we're profiling 100 more. Welcome to the 2014 edition of 100 Creatives. Up today: 8. Kendra Sollars.

It's difficult to describe Kendra Sollars in one word, but "multitalented" might work best.

The 27-year-old Tempe artist grew up a competitive synchronized swimmer and took her aquatic talents all the way to The Ohio State University, where her team won two national championships in 2009. From 2011 through 2012, she performed with Cirque deSoliel's O in Las Vegas.

Lately? She's been busy working with Lauren Strohacker on Animal Lands, their Contemporary Forum grant-winning project that brings imagery and video of native wildlife to urban spaces.
