Martha Gonzalez

For Martha Gonzalez, this is the eye of the hurricane. The Grammy winner, activist, scholar, community builder and mentor has been working to inspire creative growth and imaginative expression around the Phoenix area as the 2016-2017 ASU Gammage guest residency artist. She’s on a short break, but starting next month her whirlwind tour of Arizona will resume. The current calm provides an opportunity for Gonzalez — "the artivist" — to discuss the role of women in art, the connection between arts and activism, and the scope of her work.
