As a museum that strives to be inclusive and to acknowledge people from all walks of life, ASU Art Museum commissioned ARENA (the artist duo Mario Gallego and Jorge Ignacio Torres) to reimagine the visitor experience. This artistic intervention, titled “Embrace,” focuses on themes of welcome, placemaking, placekeeping, and the activation of the five senses. ARENA (the Spanish word that translates to sand) was directly influenced by the landscape of the Sonoran desert and the building architect’s use of space and light.
