Celebracion Artistica de las Americas launched PHX Residencias Artisticas, an international artist residency and cultural exchange program between Phoenix and Guadalajara, Mexico.

The program offers sponsored residencies to artists from Guadalajara to travel and work in Phoenix, while artists in Phoenix are invited and work in Guadalajara, Jalisco.

Artists Gabriel Rico from Guadalajara and Estrella Payton from Phoenix were selected as the first participants in the program. Rico, whose work has been exhibited in France, Spain and Italy now has an exhibit at the ASU Art Museum, which is his first in the United States.

Casandra Hernandez Faham,  director CALA Alliance believes the program offers incredible experiences and opportunities for artists to showcase their work.
