Artwork of Karen Kuykendall


Opening May 15th, 2021

Artist Karen Kuykendall's paintings, jewelry and papier-mache have been exhibited at both the Phoenix Art Museum and the Tucson Art Museum. She was a published author and teacher who created a fantasy world of Cat-People which inspired a lot of her artwork including dolls, sculptures and paintings. With over 1000 pieces now a part of the Mesa Historical Museum's permanent collection, we plan to open an exhibit room dedicated to her art.
