An Arizona icon, Pedro E. Guerrero is the celebrated photographer behind some of the most iconic artist portraits and architectural photographs of the 20th century. His most legendary subjects included Frank Lloyd Wright, Alexander Calder and Louise Nevelson. This exhibition turns the focus back on Guerrero and features his long, illustrious career, which began in his hometown of Mesa, Arizona and took him across the country and overseas to Europe. In addition to mid-century modern architecture, the exhibition showcases Guerrero’s experiences during World War II, his time in New York during the 1940s and assignments for notable magazines, like Home and Garden. Guerrero’s ephemeral photographs are a rich source of Americana that capture an incredible time of innovation and change that is often revered with a sense of nostalgia.
