Vision Gallery in Downtown Chandler presents "Futureland, Arizona: An Art Show," on display from Jan. 10 through Feb. 15, 2019.

The exhibition showcases the work of artists Daniel Funkhouser and Sarah Hurtwitz and their interpretative look into the future of Arizona. Using creative local imagery, a vibrant design aesthetic and unique media, Funkhouser and Hurtwitz have created an exhibit that highlights the Arizona environment and the ways in which they imagine that environment will evolve.

“Have you ever imagined what the future holds? Well now you don’t have to,” says Peter Bugg, visual arts coordinator at the Vision Gallery. “Whether visitors choose to summit artificially formed future mountains, wander through mutant cacti species with a trusty field guide, or witness a beautiful sunset filtered through one-time-use plastic, 'Futureland, Arizona' provides a dynamic glimpse of the fate of the Valley.”

Join the Vision Gallery for a reception with the artists from 6-8 p.m., Friday, Jan. 11. The reception is free and open to the public.

Vision Gallery is located at 10 E. Chicago St., in the Chandler City Hall complex. It is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, and admission is always free.
