Carmen Monoxide Featured at Herberger Theater
The Spectrum earned its second gallery feature on April 26, 2018 at The Artists of Promise gala at the Herberger Theater. The annual gala and exhibition honors the Chancellor Award Winners of Maricopa Community Colleges' student competitions in creative writing, dance/choreography, fashion design, film/media arts, music composition, music instrumental, music vocal, theater design, theater performance, and visual arts.
The photo entitled “Carmen Monoxide I” features a unique spiral staircase composition and juxtaposition of a man’s hand in a seemingly womanly face. The photograph was inspired by a love of all things vintage, old Hollywood, and of course, drag. This is the photoshoot that inspired the Spectrum Art project and paved the way for future drag features on the site.
